Pictures at an Exhibition

June 2-11

Marion Oliver McCaw Hall

321 Mercer Street, Seattle Center

206.441.2424 | pnb.org

For the sixth program of its 44th season, Pacific Northwest Ballet presents the PNB premieres by three of the most significant names in ballet: George Balanchine’s classical La Source is a hybrid work, drawn from several earlier ballets and first presented as a showcase for the legendary dancer Violette Verdy. Opus 19/The Dreamer, by Jerome Robbins, is a much darker work, an emotional and physical marathon with enormous awards for audience and artist alike. PNB Artistic Director Peter Boal performed Opus 19/The Dreamer for most of his career as a dancer with New York City Ballet, and he will be staging it along with La Source for their PNB debuts. The evening comes to a close with Alexei Ratmansky’s ravishing Pictures at an Exhibition. Like the ever-changing Kandinsky watercolors that set the stage, ten dancers move in varying combinations to display a plethora of emotion, from raw and wild to solemn and soulful in this work, which will be staged for PNB by the acclaimed former NYCB principal dancer Wendy Whelan. Tickets start at $30.
