BNY Mellon Presents Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre + Dance Theatre of Harlem
- Date: Mar 15 - Mar 24, 2019
- Venue: August Wilson Center
In partnership with the August Wilson Center for African American Culture
When Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and Dance Theatre of Harlem joined forces in 2017 for a sold-out run at the August Wilson Center, the Post-Gazette called it “a pas de deux of voluminous proportions.” Audiences called encore. In March, the companies will 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.
