Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, one of the world's most beloved dance companies and a favorite with Boston audiences, returns for their annual visit to Celebrity Series with performances that include founder Alvin Ailey's seminal 1960 work "Revelations". It was in 1968 that the dynamic, then-emerging African-American dance company first performed at John Hancock Hall. The success of that Boston debut led to a 50-year relationship between the iconic dance company and the city of Boston. Through decades of brilliant performances and educational outreach, the partnership between Celebrity Series and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has had a deep and lasting impact on the greater Boston community. The company is celebrated not just for their exquisite performance of beloved classics, but also for their commitment to bold, new dance styles, offering something for every taste. Join in celebrating the love affair between the company and the city of Boston with this special anniversary performance.
