In June, American Ballet Theatre performed the US premiere of Cathy Marston’s Jane Eyre at the Metropolitan Opera House. The ballet was brought to the United States through a joint collaboration with Joffrey Ballet, which will now perform the work in its fall season in Chicago.
Given the paucity of female-choreographed, full-length ballets for the main stage around the ballet world, Marston’s invitation and support by these two major companies is of no small significance. Programming women is vital to diversifying ballet company repertoire, and these companies are leading the way.
