New ballets at American Ballet Theatre, the return of the Paul Taylor Dance Company, the tap artist Dormeshia, and more.

American Ballet Theatrefinally gets its New York première of the ballet “Of Love and Rage,” by the company’s choreographer-in-residence, Alexei Ratmansky. The work, which débuted in California days before the lockdown, is a large-scale, evening-length spectacle, inspired by a first-century adventure-romance from the Greek author Chariton of Aphrodisias. It opens during A.B.T.’s summer season, at the Metropolitan Opera House (June 13-July 16), which also features “Don Quixote” (with a promising début by the young dynamo Catherine Hurlin), “Swan Lake” (of course), and a new work by the California-based Alonzo King.

Save this story for later. American Ballet Theatre finally gets its New York première of the ballet “Of Love and Rage,” by the company’s choreographer-in-residence, Alexei Ratmansky. The work, which débuted in California days before the lockdown, is a large-scale, evening-length spectacle, inspired by a first-century adventure-romance from the Greek author Chariton of Aphrodisias. It opens during A.B.T.’s summer season, at the Metropolitan Opera House (June 13-July 16), which also features “Don Quixote” (with a promising début by the young dynamo Catherine Hurlin), “Swan Lake” (of course), and a new work by the California-based Alonzo King. At the Joyce, the Paul Taylor Dance Company performs three intriguing programs (June 14-19) that combine reconstructions of early Taylor experiments not seen in years—among them “Events II,” from 1957, and “Fibers,” from 1961—with new pieces by contemporary dancemakers. Later, the theatre hosts Dormeshia (July 26-31), a tap artist of enormous warmth and finesse. The Joyce has also orchestrated the return of the highly regarded Pacific Northwest Ballet (at the David H. Koch, June 22-26), its first visit in five years. The run includes works by Ulysses Dove, Crystal Pite, and Twyla Tharp. For Summer for the City (May 14-Aug. 14), Lincoln Center transforms into an outdoor playground devoted to performance, relaxation, and audience participation. The festival introduces a giant dance floor, called the Oasis, on Josie Robertson Plaza, which will host classes and social dancing on warm summer nights. The BAAND Together Dance Festival (Aug. 9-13) returns, with mixed bills of major New York companies. At the Rose Theatre, Aug. 11-13, A.I.M by Kyle Abraham performs a danced version of Mozart’s Requiem, through the lens of electronic music. For those itching to get out into nature, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, in Becket, Mass., offers shows both indoors, at its newly renovated Ted Shawn Theatre, and out, on a stage with a sweeping view of the Berkshires.
