American Ballet Theatre’s Premiere Club supports the creation of one new production each year, an initiative which speaks directly to ABT’s role as a leader in classical dance. The premiere work may take the form of a new ballet by one of the great contemporary choreographers, or a revival or re-staging of a classical masterpiece. American Ballet Theatre has enjoyed a long history of artistic collaborations with some of the world's leading choreographers, including Antony Tudor, Sir Kenneth MacMillan and Agnes de Mille, as well as Twyla Tharp, Mark Morris, ABT Artist in Residence Alexei Ratmansky and Christopher Wheeldon.
In 2012, the Premiere Club celebrated Alexei Ratmansky's new production of Firebird. Premiere Club members also received special benefits surrounding these premieres, including a sneak preview in rehearsal at ABT’s home studios and the final working dress rehearsal at the Metropolitan Opera House. In addition to complimentary tickets to the Opening Night performance, Premiere Club members enjoyed a backstage tour before the performance and an on-stage reception after the performance with the choreographers and ABT dancers.
For the 2013 Spring Season, ABT's Premiere Club will celebrate a new trilogy of works by Alexei Ratmansky set to the symphonic music of Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich. This program will reprise Symphony #9, recently premiered as part ABT’s 2012 Fall Season at New York City Center, along with World Premieres set to Symphony No. 1 and Chamber Symphony for Strings (Op. 110a). As a Premiere Club member, you will also receive the benefits of ABT’s Golden Benefactor membership level including: VIP access to advanced ticket sales and ticketing assistance through our Patron Ticketing office, invitations to all Golden Circle Dress Rehearsals, invitation to exclusive events including the annual Golden Circle Luncheon, and much more.
As a special one-time offer, first year members at the Benefactor level will receive the benefits of the Premiere Club and Golden Benefactor level. All members at or above the Golden Benefactor level receive benefits of the Premiere Club.
