American Ballet Theatre: Giselle

American Ballet Theatre: Giselle

Experience a phenomenal evening of stunning artistry when America’s National Ballet Company,®  American Ballet Theatre (ABT), returns to the Lied Center to with the romantic masterwork Giselle. Accompanied by Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra, Giselle is a perfect match for the virtuosity of ABT’s unrivaled roster of international ballet stars who bring the story of unrequited love, revenge, and forgiveness vividly to life. The New York Times proclaims “...this (Giselle) happens to be the best America has ever seen...”

This spectacular production is the latest in a series of historic moments with American Ballet Theatre at the Lied Center. In 2018, the Lied Center presented a landmark collaboration between ABT and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra to perform Igor Stravinsky’s masterwork Firebird with ballet superstar Misty Copeland in the title role. In 2021, the Lied brought American Ballet Theater’s ABT ACROSS AMERICA to Lincoln’s Pioneers Park, drawing a crowd of more than 6,000 and earning national media attention.

“American Ballet Theatre’s best, most moving classical production”
