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.
Join us in celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Natalia Makarova’s magical production of La Bayadère! The sweeping vistas and grand temples of India set the stage for this beloved 19th century ballet depicting eternal love and godly revenge. Explore the La Bayadère program, including a message from Natalia Makarova, a guest artist spotlight on Olga Smirnova and Kimin Kim, a hair and makeup feature on the Bronze Idol and appearances from iconic ABT dancers of the past and present.
