The American Ballet Theatre (ABT) had its Opening Night Gala at the Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center last night. Performances included pieces by Tchaikovsy and Rimsky-Korsakov. First Lady Michelle Obama was once again an honorary chair, and many celebrities were present to celebrate, including Sigourney Weaver and Uma Thurman. After the performance, the guests moved to the black and white themed dinner dance, where they were entertained by the Hank Lane Orchestra until the late hours of the evening. The band ended the night with a packed dance floor during “Danza Kuduro”. Hank Lane Music has had the honor of performing at the ABT Gala for twenty years running.
