In the history of ballet, there's never been another event like it. For two incredible weeks, the most magnificent companies from around the globe converge at the nation's performing arts center to celebrate some of ballet's greatest choreographers. You won't want to miss these once-in-a-lifetime performances, featuring a dazzling spectacle of treasured masterworks; no where else can you see three world-class ballet companies come together for one performance.

American Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, March 4 thru 9, 2003

On the first week's program, American Ballet Theatre pays tribute to Jerome Robbins with a re-staging of his first ABT ballet, the youthful and utterly American Fancy Free. The renowned Royal Danish Ballet performs the pas de six and tarantella from August Bournonville's romantic Napoli. And the Bolshoi Ballet presents breathtaking dance in its own bravura style.
