Led by Artistic Director Peter Boal, the renowned Pacific Northwest Ballet returns to City Center with two programs that reflect the company’s reputation for luminous George Balanchine stagings and thrilling takes on the brightest works in contemporary ballet. The first program offers a career-spanning trio of Balanchine masterpieces—including Square Dance, which premiered at City Center in 1957. The second program features David Dawson’s blissful A Million Kisses to my Skin, William Forsythe’s technical powerhouse The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, and Crystal Pite’s mesmerizing Emergence. The acclaimed PNB Orchestra, conducted by Emil de Cou, will accompany both programs.
“The dancers fill the theater with light, radiant, musical dancing.”
