ABT Across America
American Ballet Theatre takes to the road traveling by bus and truck to 8 U.S. cities over 21 days. ABT Across America builds on ABT’s history of cross-country tours in the 1940s and 1950s. From its starting point in Lincoln, Nebraska, ABT Across America will cross the United States in a caravan of 6 sleeper buses and 3 production trucks. 20 ABT dancers and 28 support crew will travel across 14 states, for a total of 3,100 miles, performing outdoors for socially distanced audiences.
Cities that will host ABT Across America include Lincoln, Iowa City, Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Charleston, and Middleburg (VA). The tour will conclude on July 21 with a performance at Rockefeller Center in New York City, the site where Ballet Theatre offered its first public performances in 1940.
Tour listings will be updated as new information is announced. Programs and casting are subject to change.
