Don Quixote
The knight-errant of la Mancha and his devoted squire, Sancho Panza, are positively heroic in this feast of choreographic fireworks inspired by Cervantes' delightful comedy.

Giselle
In a perfect fusion of music, movement and drama, this Romantic ballet epitomizes the transcendent power of love and forgiveness in an ABT signature production.

Coppélia
The perfect introduction to ballet, Coppélia brings alive the charm and comic wit of E.T.A. Hoffmann's beloved tale with storybook sets and Léo Delibes' tuneful score.

Cinderella Company Premiere
Frederick Ashton's Cinderella is widely considered one of the greatest ballets of this timeless rags-to-riches fairy tale, performed to Prokofiev's hauntingly soaring score.

Swan Lake
Considered the world's quintessential ballet, this fable of ill-fated romance, dreamlike transformation and selfless compassion is performed to Tchaikovsky's famed score.

La Bayadère
Amid the grand temples of mystical India, this Russian classic is a glorious epic of eternal love and godly revenge, featuring a breathtaking showcase of ABT's corps de ballet in the famed "Kingdom of the Shades."

Manon Major Revival
From the ornate salons of Paris to the mysterious bayous of Louisiana, Kenneth MacMillan's masterwork soars to searing heights as the courtesan Manon chooses between the temptations of wealth and true love.

Shakespeare Celebration
ABT celebrates the Bard's 450th birthday with a magical double bill featuring Ashton's spellbinding The Dream, inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, and the meditation on romance, revenge and redemption, The Tempest, choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky.

Classic Spectacular
This triple bill offers the opportunity to experience ballet classicism at its best, including a Major Revival of Massine's Gaîté Parisienne with high-kicking can-can girls in eye-popping Christian Lacroix costumes, performed in repertory with Balanchine's Theme and Variations and Duo Concertant.
