The American Ballet Theatre will be in Charleston July 17 for a free outdoor performance at The Citadel’s parade ground, Summerall Field. To attend, you are asked to RSVP for the first-come, first-served performance.

Presented by the Charleston Gaillard Center, ABT Across America is being staged in eight cities across the country.  Each show will be performed without an intermission. Repertory for ABT Across America will feature Lauren Lovette’s La Follia Variations, a work for eight dancers set to music by Francesco Geminiani, Jessica Lang’s Let Me Sing Forevermore, a pas deux blending ballet and jazz vocabulary set to songs sung by Tony Bennett, Darrell Grand Moultrie’s Indestructible Light, a celebration of American jazz music, and a classical pas de deux from ABT’s extensive repertoire.
