Prepare to be mesmerised by this wonderfully magical ballet, recounting one of our most beloved fairy-tales, that of the cursed Princess Aurora, otherwise known as The Sleeping Beauty. The first ballet scored by Tchaikovsky. Lovingly reimagined by ABT's Artist in Residence, Alexi Ratmansky, the production still retains the most treasured and iconic parts of the ballet - with a monumental twist!

Sir Kenneth MacMillan's interpretation of Shakespeare's enduring romantic tragedy has become one of ABT's signature productions. The story of Verona's tragic star-crossed lovers is weaved throughout a rich dance tapestry, with Renaissance Italy providing an elegant and period-perfect background. The original production starred Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in the lead roles, making it one of ballets most enduring and culturally important productions.

Winner of the 2001 Turner Prize, British artist Martin Creed has pursued an extraordinary path by confounding the traditional categories of art and employing a minimalistic approach that strips away the unnecessary while preserving an abundance of wit, humor, and surprise. Crossing all media including painting, drawing, music, dance, theater, film, sculpture, fashion, and more, Creed’s practice meditates on our everyday existence and the visible and invisible structures that shape our lives.
