NEW YORK CITY -
The world’s most popular modern dance company is “dancing better than ever” (The New Yorker) and Artistic Director Robert Battle “has injected the company with new life” (The New York Times). This holiday season, Ailey returns with an ambitious array of premieres and repertory favorites. New this year are Wayne McGregor’s sensory feast Chroma, Bill T. Jones’ exhilarating D-Man in the Waters (Part I), Ronald K. Brown’s powerful Four Corners, and LIFT, a world premiere by the audacious Aszure Barton. New productions of Pas de Duke and The River celebrate the extraordinary collaboration between Alvin Ailey and Duke Ellington, and most programs end with Mr. Ailey’s masterpiece, Revelations (performed with live music on select dates).

New this Season:
World premieres from Ronald K. Brown and Aszure Barton, company premieres of the groundbreaking Chroma by Wayne McGregor and and Bessie Award-winning work D-Man in the Waters (Part I) by Bill T. Jones, and two Alvin Ailey/Duke Ellington collaborations.



Returning Favourites:
The season also includes Ohad Naharin’s audience-grabbing Minus 16, Jirí Kylián’s breathtaking Petite Mort, Kyle Abraham's jazzy Another Night, Ronald K. Brown’s fan favorite Grace, the spirit-lifting joy of Revelations, and more.  

Special Programs:
At select performances, enjoy the added thrill of Revelations accompanied by live music, free Q&As with the Ailey dancers, a celebration of dancer Matthew Rushing, and more.

OPENING NIGHT GALA
Ailey’s star-studded Opening Night Gala is one of the most spectacular events of the holiday season. All proceeds benefit the creation of new works, scholarships to The Ailey School, and Ailey's educational programs for children.

Program:Chroma C
The groundbreaking British choreographer’s contemporary ballet is full of sensory surprises: sumptuous movement, a driving score by Joby Talbot with orchestrations of songs by the White Stripes, and a luminous set by minimalist architect John Pawson.

Revelations with Live Music
Using African-American spirituals, song-sermons, gospel songs and holy blues, Alvin Ailey’s Revelations fervently explores the places of deepest grief and holiest joy in the soul. More than just a popular dance work, it has become a cultural treasure, beloved by generations of fans. See Revelations with live music at this performance.
