Gala Of The Stars 2014
Festival Ballet Theatre’s annually sold-out 7th Annual Gala of the Stars showcases internationally revered guest artists from the world’s most prestigious dance companies, along with FBT’s accomplished resident company. Celebrating more than 25 years of artistic excellence, Festival Ballet Theatre simultaneously attracts the best in professional dance to its home base while sending its own dancers out as artistic ambassadors to the world.
“The dancers… are an undeniable draw,” says dance critic Laura Bleiberg, about a previous year’s event. “It is rare to see these dancers sharing the stage together.” This year’s cast will include illustrious dancers of the calibre of previous years.
