Los Angeles, CA (December 8, 2015) American Ballet Theatre (ABT) celebrated its 75th Anniversary with a Holiday Benefit December 7, 2015 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Beverly Hills.  The event featured a one-night-only special performance by the world-renowned artists of American Ballet Theatre, including newly-promoted principal dancers Stella Abrera and Misty Copeland, dancing scenes from the Company’s unrivaled repertoire, followed by a post-performance dinner and dessert with the dancers.  The evening was sponsored by Harry Winston and Lloyd E. Rigler – Lawrence E. Deutsch Foundation. The event chairs sparkled and lit up the red carpet with spectacular Harry Winston Diamond Jewels.  Co-Chairs included:  Avery and Andy Barth, Rochelle Gores Fredston, Eloisa Maturén, Michael Moser (Vice-President Regional West Coast Retail, Harry Winston), Catharine Soros, Sutton Stracke and Liane Weintraub.

American Ballet Theatre Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie welcomed guests noting that “ABT has toured all 50 states, but California holds a special place in our hearts, spanning more than 50 years, including the inaugural season at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.”  Further reflecting on the ties with Southern California, he referenced the past fall opening of the American Ballet Theatre William J. Gillespie School at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Orange County. Beginning this year, American Ballet Theatre will expand its presence with an annual presentation of Alexei Ratmansky’s The Nutcracker at the Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts with performances running December 11-20, 2015.

The Holiday Benefit performance included excerpts from ballet classics including The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, with Misty Copeland reprising her sensational New York debut as Odette/Odile from last season, and Stella Abrera, a native Angeleno, presenting an excerpt from her critically-acclaimed interpretation of Giselle. The program also included American Ballet Theatre repertoire from choreographers Paul Taylor (Company B) and George Balanchine (Valse Fantaisie) demonstrating the versatility and strength of the Company.www.abt.org

Among those in attendance:  Nigel Lythgoe, Jennifer Tilly, Dita Von Teese, Jesse Metcalfe, Cara Santana, Eva La Rue, Kym Johnson, Cheryl Burke, Lesley Ann Warren, Nora Zehetner, Avery and Andy Barth, Rochelle Gores Fredston, Catharine Soros, Sutton Stracke, Liane and Richard Weintraub, ABT Board Chair Don Kramer, Harry Winston VP Regional West Coast Retail Michael Moser, Los Angeles Music Center President Rachel Moore, Alex and Sandrine Yust, Clara and Larry Yust, and Victoria Yust.

ABT has been home to many of ballet’s legendary stars – Mikhail Baryshnikov, Natalia Makarova, Carla Fracci, Cynthia Gregory, Alicia Alonso, and Fernando Bujones – and is renowned for its lavish productions of full-length ballets including Swan Lake, Giselle, La Bayadère, and Romeo and Juliet.  With a Company of 90 of the world’s most celebrated dancers ABT performs for audiences of more than 300,000 each year in New York City, across the country, and around the world.
