The Costume Fund
American Ballet Theatre’s Costume Fund has dressed the most celebrated characters in classical dance. Giselle, Nikiya, Kitri: the leading ladies of ABT’s roster now have restored costumes as elegant as the ballerinas who portray them. In the spring of 2003, ABT launched this new initiative dedicated to the creation, restoration, replacement, and archiving of our amazing costumes.
In honor of ABT’s 75th Anniversary, Alexei Ratmansky is creating a brand new production of The Sleeping Beauty. Over 100 years ago, Petipa’s choreography and Tchaikovsky’s score created an enchanting production of The Sleeping Beauty. Today, Alexei Ratmansky continues their legacy with his new production of this classic fairy tale while honoring the genius of his predecessors. Your donation towards the Costume Fund allows ABT to continue to create the world-class artistry for which it is known through the creation of magnificent costumes. Ratmansky’s The Sleeping Beauty, with costume designs by Tony Award®-winning designer Richard Hudson, consists of over 400 detailed costumes. Each costume consists of intricate and individual bead work, lace embellishments, silk accents, and even feather adornment. Your support of the Costume Fund will help bring this brand new ballet to life and maintain its beauty for years to come.
