The famous Stateside dance company, American Ballet Theatre, returns to Sadler’s Wells with two programmes.

Recognised as one of America’s national treasures, few ballet companies equal American Ballet Theatre for its combination of size, scope, and sheer skill. The company’s vast repertoire takes in all of the great full-length ballets of the 19th century as well as modern classics and new commissions. At Sadler’s Wells, the company presents two programmes which showcase this extraordinary versatility.

American Ballet Theatre’s Programme One includes two UK premieres, Alexei Ratmansky’s Seven Sonatas and Benjamin Millepied’s Everything Doesn’t Happen At Once. The programme also includes Twyla Tharp’s Known By Heart pas de deux and for the first time, American Ballet Theatre presents George Balanchine’s Duo Concertant, set to music by Stravinsky.

Opening American Ballet Theatre’s Programme Two is Balanchine’s classic Theme And Variations, set to music by Tchaikovsky, plus Antony Tudor’s beautiful Jardin Aux Lilas (Lilac Garden), which was premiered by Ballet Rambert in 1936, and Paul Taylor’s Company B, performed to songs sung by the Andrews Sisters.
