REVIVAL PREMIERES

American Ballet Theatre’s 2013 Fall season will feature the revival premieres of Michel Fokine’s Les Sylphides, Twyla Tharp’s Bach Partita and Mark Morris’ Gong on Friday evening, November 1.

Set to music by Frederic Chopin, Les Sylphides, a one act plotless work, was given its Company Premiere at Ballet Theatre’s inaugural performance on January 11, 1940 at the Center Theatre in New York City.

Set to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Partita No. 2 in D minor for solo violin, Twyla Tharp’s Bach Partita features costumes by Santo Loquasto and lighting by Jennifer Tipton. The work received its World Premiere by ABT in 1983 at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. danced by Cynthia Gregory, Martine van Hamel, Magali Messac, Fernando Bujones, Clark Tippet and Robert La Fosse. Last performed by ABT in 1985, Bach Partita will be given four performances at the David H. Koch Theater.
