New York Theatre Ballet
New York Theatre Ballet was founded in 1978 by its artistic director, Diana Byer. It is the most widely seen chamber ballet company in the United States. “New York Theatre Ballet confirms its status as an invaluable company,” says Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times. NYTB has earned national acclaim for its restoration and revival of small masterworks by great choreographers and for its innovative hour-long ballets based on children’s literature.
NYTB tours family and adult programs both nationally and abroad. Its audiences know the company for its theatrical expressiveness, high production quality, and intimate accessibility to every audience member. With sincere gratitude to the Furman Mathewson Trust of Edgecombe County Memorial Library, ECC is pleased to welcome New York Theatre Ballet back to Tarboro for a fifth straight season.
