David Hallberg to Withdraw from Upcoming American Ballet Theatre Performances Due to Injury

Due to a recurring foot injury requiring surgery, American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer David Hallberg will withdraw from upcoming performances with the Company this Fall, it was announced today by Kevin McKenzie, Artistic Director.

In addition to ABT's Fall Season at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, Hallberg was scheduled to perform on tour with the Company in Swan Lake at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in Brisbane, Australia and in Fancy Free at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, Illinois.

"It is with great regret that I have to step off the stage for this period of recovery," said David Hallberg. "But as an artist that relies on his body as his instrument, my main priority is to dance in full health and take the time needed to perform at that level again."
