The American Ballet Theatre is putting on its annual holiday benefit at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on December 11th, and you're invited! This year’s benefit, sponsored by fine jewelry company Harry Winston Inc., will honor Judy Morr, Executive Vice President of Segerstrom Center for the Arts. The evening includes a one-night-only performance by the world-renowned artists of American Ballet Theatre, followed by a post-performance dinner and dessert with the dancers. Featured among the performances will be excerpts by famed choreographer Benjamin Millepied, Alexei Ratmansky and Christopher Wheeldon, as well as scenes from the Company’s most treasured classics, The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
American Ballet Theatre has been home to many of ballet’s legendary stars – Mikhail Baryshnikov, Natalia Makarova, Alessandra Ferri, Julio Bocca, Paloma Herrera, Angel Corella, Julie Kent and Ethan Stiefel to name a few– and is renowned for its lavish productions of full-length ballets including Swan Lake, Giselle, La Bayadère, and Romeo and Juliet. With a Company of 90 of the world’s most celebrated dancers, ABT performs for audiences of more than 400,000 each year in New York City, Southern California, across the United States, and around the world. On April 27, 2006, by an act of Congress, American Ballet Theatre was named America’s National Ballet Company.
