This spring, American Ballet Theatre will perform Lar Lubovitch’s Othello at the Metropolitan Opera House. Hailed as "a milestone in the history of dance in this country" by the San Francisco Examiner when the ballet debuted in 1997, Othello has not been seen in New York in more than 8 years. Othello is being presented by ABT in 2015 as one of the highlights of their 75th anniversary season. To mark the festive occasion, the Lubovitch company will be hosting a theater party with artists and friends, immediately following the performance. You are invited to come and meet Lar Lubovitch and the artists.

The starry cast on May 19th will include: Marcelo Gomes (Othello), Julie Kent (Desdemona), James Whiteside (Iago), Stella Abrera (Emilia), Joseph Gorak (Cassio) and Misty Copeland (Bianca).

Critics have described the dance as "stunning," "electrifying" and "spectacular."
The current New York Magazine says next week's performance is one of the things you "must do."

Many dancers dream of dancing Lar Lubovitch's choreography on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House (see the article above). You can now follow your dream by studying directly with Lar Lubovitch and his dancers.

From May 31 to June 20, 2015, the Lubovitch company will offer will offer an intensive workshop for pre-professional and professional dancers at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York. Led by Lar Lubovitch, the program will offer training in Technique (Modern & Ballet), Lubovitch Repertory, and Body Conditioning. Veteran Lubovitch dancers (Jonathan Alsberry, Jason McDole, Kate Skarpetowska and Ginger Thatcher) will teach daily classes. Students will have the opportunity to enjoy Skidmore’s facilities and Saratoga Springs, while training and performing under the guidance of these master teachers. On June 17th (during the residency), the company will perform at SPAC (the Saratoga Performing Arts Center), and students will have an opportunity to see the company perform three of the company's newest works. College credit is available.

"I know who you are.

"You are the one amongst many who will make the leap from being a dance student to being a Dancer. You have existed for hundreds of years. You are part of a tradition that has been passed by hand from dancer to dancer to dancer. You have been living and breathing on the energy dreams are made of.

"It is a powerful source and there is nothing illusory about it. Trust it. Dreams have been the origin of all Art and the inspiration that has transformed impossible fantasies into verifiable realities.

"The puzzle for you now is how to actualize the dream, how to utilize the formidable energy of dreams which, by the way, is not a gift given to everyone. Amongst those to whom this gift has been given are fewer still who have the skill and courage to bring it out of one's mind's eye and into the visible world.

"I am glad to say that you will not be able to Google the answer you are looking for."
