ABT Then and NowABT OffStage: A 2020 Virtual Season

As the global health crisis made it impossible for our 80th Anniversary season at The Metropolitan Opera House to continue as planned, American Ballet Theatre OffStage: A 2020 Virtual Season brought artistry of ABT into homes everywhere.

As ABT marks its 80th Anniversary, celebrate the bold, diverse, inventive repertoire that has defined the Company since its founding in 1940. Explore the ABT Then and Now program, including a ballet class with ABT legends Stella Abrera and Sascha Radetsky, a look at ABT through the years and a conversation between Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie, Principal Herman Cornejo and choreographer Jessica Lang.
