You're Invited To The American Ballet Theatre's Super-Luxe Gala

0 comments

MAIN-EMBED Normally, when we say the words "ballet" and "gala," well, "cool" isn't exactly next off the tips of our tongues. But, the American Ballet Theatre's 70th anniversary celebration has us changing our minds classical tunes.

Performance-wise, they're serving up a quartet, including two duets and a company-wide ensemble, then closing with Agnes de Mille's Rodeo. ABT is resurfacing the old classic from the dancer's prolific repertoire, whose 1942 premiere (70 years ago, to the day!) delivered generally game-changing, cinematic choreography. After final curtain, Refinery29 gal pal Harley Viera-Newtown will lend expertise on the ones and twos at the celebratory gala happening at the Pierre Hotel.

Yep, there's a definitely an unexpected cool quotient to this one…guess whose tongues are wagging now?

If you can't commit to the whole night, there are gala-only tix available by phone (Special Events office at 212-477-3030, ext. 3311), and performance-only tix start at only $20!
