Fall Gala

Tuesday, October 26, 2021
6:30pm - Gala Performance

We are thrilled to announce the date for ABT’s Fall Gala – our first in-person gala since 2019! Please join us on Tuesday, October 26th at 6:30pm ET for a celebration at the David H. Koch Theater.

This year’s Fall Gala will honor ABT Trustee Jenna Segal, champion supporter of the ABT Women’s Movement, with The Melville Straus Leadership Achievement Award.

The centerpiece of the evening will be the World Premiere of Jessica Lang’s ZigZag, set to songs recorded by Tony Bennett and featuring costumes by Wes Gordon (creative director of Carolina Herrera) and scenery by Tony Award Winner® Derek McLane. Joining ZigZag in the Gala programming will be works created in our quarantined “ballet bubbles” including Lauren Lovette’s La Follia Variations, Christopher Rudd’s Touché, and an excerpt from Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Indestructible Light.
