American Ballet Theatre — "La Bayadère"

Mar 19-22, 2020


American Ballet Theatre (ABT) celebrates its 80th anniversary and the 40th anniversary of Natalia Makarova’s restaging of La Bayadère when it returns to Chicago as the Auditorium Theatre’s Visiting Resident Ballet Company. Set in the Royal India of the past, ABT’s La Bayadère is a“sumptuous full-length ballet” (The New York Times) that tells an enthralling story of eternal love, mystery, fate, vengeance, and justice in a “hypnotic spectacle of precision and heavenly harmony”(The Washington Post). With dramatic dancing, opulent sets, and exquisite costumes, ABT’s La Bayadère makes for “edge-of-your-seat watching” (The New York Times).
