ABT Across America

Known as “America’s National Dance Company” via an act of Congress, American Ballet Theatre is traveling by bus and truck to eight U.S. cities and arriving in St. Louis on Wednesday, July 14, for two FREE performances at 5:30PM and 8:30PM on the grounds of Shakespeare Glen, Forest Park. These unique outdoor presentations are among the first live performances for ABT in over a year.

Presented in partnership with Susan Sherman, COCA and St. Louis Shakespeare Festival. 

The Presenting Partners are grateful for a lead grant from the Whitaker Foundation and supporting gifts from a host of community funders to make these ABT performances and master classes possible for our city.
