ABT has signed a multi-year agreement for a two-week fall season at the Koch Theater. This means they will follow NYCB's fall season and we will see the two companies at the same theatre for the first time in decades.
AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE ANNOUNCES
2013 FALL SEASON AT DAVID H. KOCH THEATER
MULTI-YEAR ENGAGEMENT TO BEGIN
WITH 12 PERFORMANCES
SCHEDULED OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 10, 2013
New York, NY – American Ballet Theatre will perform a Fall season, October 30-
November 10, 2013, at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, it was announced
today by Rachel S. Moore, ABT’s Chief Executive Officer. The engagement begins a
multi-year agreement with the Koch Theater, the terms of which include two weeks of
performances each Fall through 2015.
“We eagerly look forward to performing at the Koch Theater next Fall,” said
Moore. “The Koch Theater is a wonderful venue for dance and its larger stage will
broaden the scope of the repertory that we can perform. Our engagement is especially
meaningful given ABT’s history of memorable performances at the venue during the
1960’s and ’70’s.”
American Ballet Theatre held regular engagements at the venue, then the New
York State Theater, from 1965 through 1976.
“American Ballet Theatre is a performing arts company that I have supported for
nearly 30 years as a member of its Board of Governing Trustees,” said David H.
Koch. “To have a ballet company that I love, perform in the David H. Koch Theater –
which bears my name – that I am proud of, is a dream come true.”
