Program A features a stunning solo from Pittsburgh native Gina Patterson, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Lacrimosa, Artistic Director Susan Jaffe’s Boléro, a new male duet choreographed by PBT Principal Dancer Yoshiaki Nakano, and excerpts from The Sleeping Beauty, Flower Festival and Swan Lake.

Program B brings the classical tradition to life through excerpts from Raymonda, La Bayadére and Don Quixote seamlessly alongside new works including Boléro, Lacrimosa, Sasha Janes’ Loss, Aszure Barton’s Awáa | Duet, and a new male duet choreographed by PBT Principal Dancer Yoshiaki Nakano.
