New York City Ballet: A Midsummer Night's Dream

David H Koch Theater

Until May 29, 2016

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.

American Ballet Theatre: La Fille Mal Gardee

Metropolitan Opera House

Until May 31, 2016

American Ballet Theatre revive Frederick Ashton's pastoral love letter to his beloved Suffolk this year as part of their 75th Anniversary season. La Fille Mal Gardee or The Wayward Daughter first premiered in London in 1960 before making the jump across the pond in 2002. Don't miss this delightfully whimsical production from one of America's greatest ballet companies!

American Ballet Theatre: The Golden Cockerel

Metropolitan Opera House

June 6-11, 2016

Alexi Ratmansky finally brings his take on The Golden Cockerel to North America, a farcical tragicomedy inspired by the Russian folk tale from Alexander Pushkin, after Mikhail Fokine's original grand production. Telling the tale of the bumbling King Dodon and his rather odd attempt to foresee danger to his kingdom with a prophetical chicken, this vivid production is a hotbed of stunning choreography, creative sets, and gloriously glittering costumes!

American Ballet Theatre: Swan Lake

Metropolitan Opera House

June 13-18, 2016

Swan Lake is one of the world's best loved ballets, performed by the most prestigious ballet companies around the globe. The American Ballet Theatre production of Swan Lake "glides to the forefront of stagings all over the world" and sets the high standards of its repertoire. Set against the mysterious forest lake and a Renaissance court is a tale of love, tranformation, betrayal and ultimate forgiveness, evoked by haunting dance and Tschaikovsky's dreamlike score, this is a quintessential ballet for first-timers and enthusiasts alike.

American Ballet Theatre: Romeo and Juliet

Metropolitan Opera House

June 20-25, 2016

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
