THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 2019 | 7:00 PM GALA PERFORMANCE | DAVID H. KOCH THEATER | LINCOLN CENTER 

 

“Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow” is an annually sold-out, spectacular Gala performance featuring the top winners of the YAGP international student ballet competition and guest stars from the world’s leading dance companies. Hailed by the late Clive Barnes of The New York Post as “the highlight of the New York ballet season,” the Gala performance gives audiences a unique chance to see some the best of the ballet professionals performing today (“STARS OF TODAY”) and the most promising international young dance artists (“STARS OF TOMORROW”). Proceeds from the Gala will go directly toward scholarships for gifted young dance students who wish to pursue a professional career in dance.

Featuring the Stars of:

  • AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE
  • BOLSHOI BALLET
  • BOSTON BALLET
  • MARIINSKY BALLET
  • NEW YORK CITY BALLET
