Program Notes

Our spring mixed repertory program will be fresh as a daisy, featuring pieces selected by Adam W. McKinney in his new role as PBT’s artistic director, including a commissioned world premiere by Pittsburgh-based choreographer, Princess Grace Award Recipient Choreographer Jae Man Joo. Also lighting up the Benedum stage will be the vibrant colors and high energy of Helen Pickett’s sparkling Petal and the exhilarating piece George Balanchine declared “everything I know about classical ballet in thirteen minutes,” his exuberant and joyous Allegro Brilliante.
