Wayne McGregor, one of the most well-known international choreographers of the 21st century, will choreograph AFTERITE as his first ballet for American Ballet Theatre.  The visceral movement and contemporary sensibility of McGregor’s unique choreographic style makes him the perfect candidate to bring an entirely new take on The Rite of Spring to the ABT stage.

ABT Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky choreographs this magical tale of the legendary creature who helps two noble lovers overcome an evil sorcerer, set to an iridescent score by Igor Stravinsky.
