Web Site of the Week: American Ballet Theatre

The American Ballet Theatre was founded in New York in 1939 by a group of dancers, choreographers, and producers enthralled with the magnetic Russian-born ballet master, Mikhail Mordkin. The group began to tour in 1957 and has spanned the globe multiple times since. Exhibition items include vintage posters, such as the 1940 advertisement of John Kriza performing Billy the Kid. Other items include photographs of performances and visiting dignitaries, a letter from President Eisenhower, and even watercolors. A brief, informative explanation accompanies each item. [CNH]
