June 4, 2018 evening marks the world premiere of the American Ballet Theatre's "Harlequinade," a colorful, humorous and joyful slapstick ballet in two acts. It was originally choreographed by Marius Petipa and premiered in 1900 in St. Petersburg. Subsequent productions included a 1965 two-act version choreographed by George Balanchine for New York City Ballet, and a 1975 one-act version choreographed by Pyott Gusev for the Mikhailovsky Ballet. This brand new ABT production is a reconstruction of Petipa's original choreography by Alexei Ratmansky. The sets and costumes by Robert Perdziola are inspired by the original designs in 1900 by Orest Allegri and Ivan Vsevolozhsky.
