Special Performance By ABT Artists Featured

Los Angeles, CA – American Ballet Theatre (ABT) presented its annual Stars Under The Stars:  An Evening in Los Angeles, at the Beverly Hills home of Jeanne and Anthony Pritzker. The event marked the beginning of ABT's celebration of its 75th anniversary Avery & Andy Barth, Dr. Richard Merkin and Laura & Jamie Rosenwald served as co-chairs for the evening, along with  along with Vice-Chairs Bob Barth & Nicole Frank and Florence Sloan;  Benefit Committee members John Bartlett, Ambassador Frank & Kathy Baxter and LeeAnn & Ron Havner.

Highlighting the evening was a one-night-only special performance by the world-renowned artists of American Ballet Theatre, including Principal Dancers Veronika Part, Hee Seo and Cory Stearns; Soloists Alexandre Hammoudi, Christine Shevchenko and Devon Teuscher and Corps de Ballet members Blaine Hoven, Luciana Paris and Arron Scott, dancing selections from the Company’s unrivaled repertoire including “Seven Sonatas,” “Cinderella,” “Swan Lake” and “Toccare.” 

This marked the third consecutive year the Pritzkers have hosted the gala special event, with the more than $250,000 raised benefiting ABT.  Stars Under The Stars raises funds to support the Company’s extensive domestic and international touring, the creation of significant new works, and award-winning education and outreach programs, which are also held in California.

Rachel Moore, ABT CEO, welcomed guests adding that “Tonight’s event is the first of many celebrations we will hold throughout 2014 and 2015 to mark ABT’s establishment in 1940 and its 75years of artistic excellence.  We are so pleased to be starting this milestone achievement with you.”

Kevin McKenzie, ABT Artistic Director took the stage to introduce the performances, sharing Moore’s gratitude for the warm Los Angeles welcome and the pride in bringing “the best in dance to America and the best in American dance to the world.”

Among those in attendance: Jane Kaczmarek, Cameron Silver, “The Insider” host Louis Aguirre, Sutton Stracke, Karyn Lovegrove, Florence Sloan, Sarah Arison, Christina Lyon,  Barbara Guggenheim, Larry Boland (President of Piaget North America), Wendy Goldberg, Irena Medavoy, and Robin & Elliott Broidy.

Universally recognized as one of the world’s preeminent cultural organizations, American Ballet Theatre is proud to have been designated by both houses of the United States Congress as “America’s National Ballet Company.” For 75 years, ABT has upheld the enduring vision of excellence upon which the Company was founded in 1940.  Few dance companies can equal the quality of ABT’s productions, the range of its repertory, or the extent of its education programming.

ABT has been home to many of ballet’s legendary stars – Mikhail Baryshnikov, Natalia Makarova, Carla Fracci, Cynthia Gregory, Alicia Alonso, and Fernando Bujones – and is renowned for its lavish productions of full-length ballets including Swan Lake, Giselle, La Bayadère, and Romeo and Juliet.  With a Company of 90 of the world’s most celebrated dancers, including Gillian Murphy, Julie Kent, Diana Vishneva, Herman Cornejo, Marcelo Gomes, and David Hallberg, ABT performs for audiences of more than 400,000 each year in New York City, Los Angeles, across the country, and around the world.
