As spring gala season nears its end and society-types turn their attention toward the Hamptons, the American Ballet Theater provided one last stop on the party circuit last night. At the Metropolitan Opera House, guests including Diane Von Furstenberg, Bridget Moynahan and Anh Duong watched Misty Copeland perform “Firebird,” followed by the world premiere of choreographer Alexei Ratmansky’s newest piece, and the return of ballet legend Alessandra Ferri for one night only, after a nine year break from the stage. Following the ballet, guests hoofed it across the plaza to the David H. Koch Theater for dinner and dancing. Now, grab a swimsuit–it’s time to head out East.
