David Hallberg off for foot surgery

DAVID HALLBERG TO WITHDRAW
FROM UPCOMING PERFORMANCES WITH
AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE DUE TO INJURY


            Due to a recurring foot injury requiring surgery, American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer David Hallberg will withdraw from upcoming performances with the Company this Fall, it was announced today by Kevin McKenzie, Artistic Director. 
            In addition to ABT’s Fall Season at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, Hallberg was scheduled to perform on tour with the Company in Swan Lake at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in Brisbane, Australia and in Fancy Free at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. He was also to have danced with the Bolshoi in Moscow and on a Japanese tour in November, and he was to have been a guest at the Tokyo Ballet and at the Mikhailovsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. He is expected to return to performing in 2015.
            "It is with great regret that I have to step off the stage for this period of recovery," said David Hallberg. "But as an artist that relies on his body as his instrument, my main priority is to dance in full health and take the time needed to perform at that level again."
