Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre makes its triumphant return to the Benedum Center with our Season Premiere with the PBT Orchestra, featuring four distinct works that capture the essence and evolution of the art form – echoing voices of four internationally-acclaimed choreographers. Helen Pickett’s vivacious Petal and Jennifer Archibald’s new work Through the Window exemplify the future of ballet. Experience Balanchine’s glittering Diamonds, an embodiment of the precision and grace of the classical tradition set to the music of Tchaikovsky, and Victor Gsovsky’s exacting Grand Pas Classique.
Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre has been Pittsburgh’s premier professional ballet company since 1969. Today, PBT is a nationally recognized ballet company of 30 professional dancers, a training institution for over 1,200 students of all ages (Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School), and an incubator for education and accessibility programs in classrooms, libraries and community centers throughout the region. Under the artistic leadership of Susan Jaffe, the company performs a wide-ranging repertoire of classical ballets, contemporary masterworks and new commissions in more than 50 performances annually at home and on tour.
