SEASON VII 2017–2018
For six years, ACB has brought you right to the edge of the performance. Now, we bring you inside.
In addition to the programs we offer during the summer, we are thrilled to present new, immersive programming that takes the up-close ACB experience to a whole new dimension. It begins at Halloween with a journey into hell. Then, at the holidays, enter a magical wonderland with The Nutcracker Suite. For Valentine’s Day, experience the perfect date night with Astaire Dances. These programs will run every season… a new holiday tradition for our city.
13*, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28
This October, go straight to hell. Dante’s tale is retold through Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Charles Wuorinen’s violent piece for two pianos and American Contemporary Ballet’s sinuous dancers. Where? 350 feet above downtown Los Angeles.
