SEASON VIII 2018–2019
Death and the Maiden
1*, 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 11
Remember, you will die.
A memento mori is an object kept as a reminder that your life is finite. This August, ACB offers a memento mori you won’t soon forget.
Death and the Maiden is a world-premiere ballet danced to Schubert’s haunting score, written when the composer knew his own death was imminent.
Don’t miss it. Nothing beautiful lasts forever.
Followed by an artist reception with live music.
*PREMIERE, including OPENING NIGHT Q&A
SEASON IX 2019–2020
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2019
Join us on October 4th for Hellraiser and help ACB keep raising hell all year long. It’s the only place you can do good while doing bad, and the time when the demons in ACB Artistic Director Lincoln Jones’ mind really come out to play, as he creates something special only for this one night.
You may lose your soul, but at least you’ll know where to find it.
TICKETS: $200, $300, $500
*A portion of your ticket purchase is tax deductible.
BURLESQUE & INFERNO
OCTOBER 4*–NOVEMBER 2, 2019
ACB is serving gothic horror, distilled, in a neon chalice, and you may not be quite sure what you’ve swallowed.
And for the truly adventurous, join us for a late-night mass on opening night. ACB's annual Hellraiser is the unmissable event of the season.
*Followed by Hellraiser (see above)
THE NUTCRACKER SUITE

ASTAIRE DANCES III

Spend this February with the man who taught us how to make love by dancing.
ACB meticulously recreates Astaire’s iconic film dances, set to live music.
BALANCHINE & THE CLASSICS:
June 5–21, 2020
In 1972, New York City Ballet shocked the dance world by presenting the romantic ballet Les Sylphides stripped of costumes, sped up, and danced only to an onstage piano.
This June, ACB recreates this groundbreaking experiment.
THE RUNNING SET
JuLY 31–AUGUST 9, 2020
Described at its premiere as a “…queer, mad work by an odd fellow from Chelsea,” Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is now known as one of the most rhapsodic and enduring pieces of orchestral music ever written.
This summer, it becomes the centerpiece of a new ballet by ACB Artistic Director Lincoln Jones.
