About

Kevin McKenzie, Artistic Director

With his vision of American Ballet Theatre as definitively "American," Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie has fashioned an "incredible company" (The New York Post) with an everlasting commitment to its vast repertoire--a national dance institution that showcases our country's best. ABT returns to the Kennedy Center Opera House to present two programs during its engagement. 

The first is a program of mixed repertory featuring Mark Morris's Gong, Jerome Robbins's Afternoon of a Faun, the Black Swan pas de deux from Kevin McKenzie's Swan Lake, and Kurt Jooss's The Green Table

The second program is Sir Kenneth MacMillan's full-length Romeo and Juliet.  This version of Shakespeare's classic romantic tragedy, performed to the music of Prokofiev, is a showcase for "the most spectacular dancing in the world" (The New York Times). From the grandeur of the masked ball to the intimacy of the garden balcony, ABT's dancers bring this tale of young love and bitter feuds to vibrant life. The company will also dance a program of mixed repertory.

"The company is dancing better than ever!"
--New York Post
