New York City Ballet: La Sylphide & Hear The Dance - Denmark

David H Koch Theater

Until May 24, 2015

Known for creating the admired Danish tradition of ballet, August Bournonville has been an inspiration to many choreographers, with his egalitarian values and light, kinetic style bringing joy and gaiety to his repertoire. Now the New York City Ballet celebrate in Hear the Dance - Denmark, bringing together his most famous work, and one of the world's oldest surviving ballets, La Sylphide and Bournonville Divertissements, which includes excerpts from 'Flower Festival in Genzaro' & 'A Folk Tale'.

American Ballet Theatre: La Bayadere

Metropolitan Opera House

June 1-6, 2015

Amid the sweeping vistas and grand temples of mystical India, Natalia Makarova's staging of this great Russian classic is a glorious epic of eternal love and godly revenge. La Bayadere offers tour de force performances by ABT's principal dancers as the tale's doomed temple dancer Nikiya, Solor as the warrior who betrays her, and her archrival, Gamzatti.

New York City Ballet: A Midsummer Night's Dream

David H Koch Theater

June 2-7, 2015

A ballet about the transforming power of love, George Balanchine's A Midsummer Night's Dream, is based on William Shakespeare's comedy about the romantic adventures and misadventures, quarrels and reunitings, of two pairs of mortal lovers and the king and queen of the fairies.

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

David H Koch Theater

June 10-21, 2015

The 56-year old AA American Dance Theater has performed for an estimated 23 million people in 48 states, as well as 71 countries on six continents. Often engaged as an ambassador for modern American dance, the troupe saw its first such engagement in 1962 as part of John F Kennedy's south east Asian and Australian tour. Whilst its repertoire is known primarily for its jazz influences, chief creative director Robert Battle has added to the dances by welcoming collaborations with other eminent choreographers, which reflects the company's ever-expanding body of work.

American Ballet Theatre: Romeo and Juliet

Metropolitan Opera House

June 15-20, 2015

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 Fonteyne and Rudolf Nuryev in the lead roles, making it one of ballet's most enduring and culturally important productions, with Leslie Browne dancing as Juliet opposite Robert La Fosse as her Romeo in this revival
