Past event

Saturday, June 3, 2017 @ 7:30 pm

Pacific Northwest Ballet

McCaw Hall, Seattle, WA

La Source
Choreography: Balanchine
Music: Delibes

Opus 19/The Dreamer
Choreography: Robbins
Music: Prokofiev

Pictures at an Exhibition
Choreography: Ratmansky
Music: Mussorgsky

La Source is Balanchine at his most elegant—a perfect aperitif. You’ll smell the perfume in this sublime work originally created for Violette Verdy. Opus 19 is a darker work by Jerome Robbins originally created for Mikhail Baryshnikov. It is also a work I danced for most of my career, working closely with Robbins in the studio. It’s an emotional and physical marathon with enormous rewards for audience and artist alike. Our final ballet is by Alexei Ratmansky (Don Quixote, Concerto DSCH), a man as humble as he is talented. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is paired with Wassily Kandinsky’s vivid geometric images; the work showcases dancers as priceless masterpieces—just like this season. You won’t want to miss a bit of it.
