Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and Dance Theatre of Harlem reunite at the August Wilson Cultural Center March 15 – 24.
When Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and Dance Theatre of Harlem joined forces in 2017 for a sold-out run at the August Wilson Cultural Center, the Post-Gazette called it “a pas de deux of voluminous proportions.” Audiences called for an encore. PBT and DTH reunite for a mixed repertory production, featuring repertoire signatures from both companies and a collaborative staging of Stanton Welch’s expressive Orange, a sweeping contemporary ballet set to music by Antonio Vivaldi. PBT will perform Rubies, the sharp, sultry second movement of George Balanchine’s Jewels, set to Igor Stravinksy’s Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra.
