Tonight's the night. At 7:30, if all goes as planned, the glamorous curtain at the Metropolitan Opera House will rise on one of those galas that make Fun City so much fun--for people who can pay $1,250 for a good seat. This won't be any ordinary, garden-variety fund-raising celebration. This will be the golden anniversary orgy of a sometimes-great cultural institution. This will be the Big Five-O birthday party for, by and of American Ballet Theatre. Everybody will be there.

Modern-dance choreographer Twyla Tharp made dance history in 1988 when she became artistic associate of American Ballet Theatre and folded five of her dancers into ABT. Bringing a modern-dance contingent into a ballet company had never been tried before, and dance watchers wondered whether the two differing aesthetics and styles could work together. Tharp had taken a big gamble.
