We're extremely excited to have one of North America's most prestigious ballet companies, American Ballet Theatre back at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University for three engagements over the next six years. Starting next year, American Ballet Theatre will return with five performances of the classic story ballet Giselle between March 22-25, 2012.

“This partnership is a significant boon to the cultural community of Chicago, and also marks a landmark moment in the history of the Auditorium Theatre. American Ballet Theatre is undoubtedly one of the finest dance companies in the world. It is with great pride that we welcome American Ballet Theatre to join the other world class companies that have and continue to grace Chicago’s landmark stage.” - Auditorium Theatre Executive Director Brett Batterson
