About American Ballet Theatre Opening Night Gala

 
American Ballet Theatre is America’s premier classical ballet company that was established in 1937. Based in the heart of the entertainment center of the world - New York City, this ballet company was ordained as America’s national ballet company by the United States Congress in 2006. The Metropolitan Opera House has remained the official venue for the American Ballet Theatre since 1977. The ABT is also associated with the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School of American Ballet, which serves as the training ground of rising ballet stars and aims to bridge the gap between ballet training and professional stage. The ballet has an in house choreographer and his battalion of meticulously selected and trained dancers, ranging from Corps de Ballet to the esteemed principal dancers. A typical ABT season spans over eight weeks when it performs at its home – the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. The rest of the year the ballet tours around the globe for its international performances. Alexis Ratmansky serves as the “Artist in Residence” or the in-house choreographer for the Ballet Theatre currently, and is the second in line of the choreographers for the ballet company after Antony Tudor (1950).
 
The main purpose of the Opening Night Gala is to entice the audience into attending the performances by the ABT scheduled during the season. To achieve this end the Gala Night features snippets of the main ballets included in the repertoire of the upcoming season. These performances are presented in the most grandiose way possible with the most demanding acts and challenging pas de deux from the selected ballets of the season, to offer the audience a taste of what the upcoming season is about. Additionally, sometimes some special performances are also featured, apart from the previews of the upcoming season, to showcase the artistic prowess of the choreographers and ballerinas associated with the Ballet Theatre. The Opening Night Gala festivities are also interspersed with speeches from honorary office holders at the American Ballet Theatre. The Spring Gala Night (2011) featured a speech from the current First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama herself, as the Honorary Chair of the Opening Night Gala. The American Ballet Theatre is also associated with the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School of American Ballet that trains young ballerinas and male dancers. The gala nights also often showcase the upcoming talent by presenting amateur performers from this academy. The performances are typically followed by a benefit dinner.

This is relevant when the Ballet Theatre presents its tribute to some of the veteran names in the history of ballet, or gives a farewell to a notable artist that serves the theater company with commendable commitment. The recent Spring Gala Opening Night 2011, for instance designed a few performances to bid farewell to one of its indispensable principal dancers - Jose Manuel Carreno who was to retire later that season.
