American Ballet Theatre (ABT) returns to Chicago as the Auditorium Theatre's Visiting Resident Ballet Company! Experience the full breadth of ABT's acclaimed artists in this mixed repertory program, featuring both classical and contemporary ballet. ABT gives the Chicago premiere of a brand-new work by celebrated choreographer Twyla Tharp, created for Principal Dancer Herman Cornejo as he celebrates his 20th anniversary with the company. The program opens with the breathtaking "Kingdom of the Shades" from the second act of Natalia Makarova's landmark production of Marius Petipa's La Bayadère, "one of the most famous and poetic expressions in all of classical ballet" (The Washington Post), and also features Antony Tudor's one-act ballet Jardin aux Lilas, considered "a masterwork of contemporary ballet" (The New York Times).
