Dancing into Chicago on the heels of last week’s Joffrey Ballet we have American Ballet Theatre in town this week for a handful of performances. Edward Kelsey Moore and his cello will play in the orchestra for two of the Program “B” mixed repertoire dance performances, this Friday, February 23rd and also the matinee on Sunday, February 25th, 2018. Other ABT performances (without Edward) are a gala-fundraiser for Millennium Park’s modern Harris Theater on Wednesday evening, two performances of the “A” program of mixed repertoire and a special children’s matinee on Saturday.

And, dear readers, don't fret... Edward loves to sit and write in the excited and energized orchestra "green room" between rehearsals, and while waiting for performances to begin. Music-making and novel writing "play well" together for Edward Kelsey Moore!
Since 1939, American Ballet Theatre has performed in the greatest theaters around the world, creating a tradition of passion, innovation, and athleticism that transcends cultural boundaries and touches the soul of ballet lovers old and new.
