Our season opener tells powerful stories of tragedy, hope and human connection. The program’s central work, a world premiere by Jennifer Archibald, celebrates the life of Florence Waren, a Jewish dancer who lived in Paris and worked with the French Resistance during World War II. Completing this stunning program are two incredibly gorgeous and intense ballets – Loss from Sasha Janes and Lacrimosa by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa.

The world premiere by Jennifer Archibald is presented in partnership with Violins of Hope Greater Pittsburgh.
