American Ballet Theatre (ABT) was founded in the fall of 1939 with dual aims of developing a repertoire of the best ballets from the past and supporting the creation of new works by gifted young choreographers. 80 years later, ABT is one of the world's preeminent classical ballet companies, a world-touring ambassador for the art form, a committed choreographic commissioner, and an energetic leader in ballet education and outreach. All of these qualities animate Duke's historic three-year institutional collaboration with ABT; the partnership's centerpiece is a run of performances by ABT's Main Company at DPAC of the romantic masterwork Giselle, an engrossing tale of unrequited love that fuses music, movement, and drama. This unmissable engagement also marks a watershed moment in statewide arts presenting: this is the first visit to North Carolina by ABT in 50 years.

Note: Casting will be announced at a later date.
