American Ballet Theatre announced that it is donating its archives to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. Consisting of more than 50,000 items, the archives span ABT's 75-year history and include documents, photographs, correspondence, recordings and more. In conjunction, the library will showcase an exhibit, "American Ballet Theatre: Touring the Globe for 75 Years" from August 14 to January 24. In case you don't have a trip to D.C. in your future, here's are some highlights.
