Photo Flash: Get A First Look At ABT's AFTERITE

BroadwayWorld has a first look at ABT's AFTERITE below!

In his first work for ABT, McGregor created a new scenario set to Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. AFTERITE is brought to the stage by set and costume designer Vicki Mortimer, with video designs by Ravi Deepres and lighting by Lucy Carter, all of whom have previously collaborated with McGregor. The World Premiere of AFTERITE features Guest Artist Alessandra Ferri. The Spring Gala will also feature a pièce d'occasion by tap dance choreographer Michelle Dorrance. Co - commissioned with the Vail Dance Festival, the World Premiere by Dorrance is her first work for ABT.

McGregor's AFTERITE will share the program with Ratmansky's Firebird for seven performances beginning through May 26. The season's first performance of Firebird features Christine Shevchenko in the title role, Thomas Forster as Ivan, Stella Abrera as The Maiden and Cory Stearns as Kaschei.
