The American Ballet Theatre Announces Spring 2016 Season

The American Ballet Theater's spring 2016 season will include one world premiere and one American premiere. The lineup includes seven full-length ballets and two triple bills. The full-lengths are "Le Corsaire," "La Fille Mal Gardée," "The Golden Cockerel," "Romeo and Juliet," "The Sleeping Beauty," "Swan Lake" and "Sylvia." The two triple bills will be "The Shostakovich Trilogy" and another yet to be announced.

This will be the first season in which Alexei Ratmansky, artist in residence with Ballet Theater since 2009, has worked on over a quarter of the programming. He made "The Golden Cockerel" for the Royal Danish Ballet in 2012. A comedy not previously seen in America, it's set to an orchestral arrangement of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's 1907 opera by the musicologist Yannis Samprovalakis, and incorporates aspects of Michel Fokine's 1937 one-act ballet version. He made "The Shostakovich Trilogy" for Ballet Theater in 2013; this will be Ballet Theater's first revival of the complete trilogy. The season's world premiere will also be by Ratmansky.
