Recognized as a living national treasure since its founding in 1940, American Ballet Theatre annually tours the United States. The Company has performed for more than 600,000 people and has appeared in all 50 states. In addition, in keeping with the Company's long-standing commitment to bringing the finest in dance to the widest international audience, ABT has also made more than 15 international tours to 126 cities in 42 countries; as perhaps the most representative American ballet company, it has been sponsored by the State Department of the United States on many of these engagements.
ABT recently enjoyed triumphant successes with engagements in Tokyo, London, Paris, Madrid, Buenos Aires, Mexico City and Palermo, Italy. In 2000, ABT toured China for the first time, appearing in both Shanghai and Hong Kong. The Company also appeared in Taipei and Singapore for the first time.
