The opener is George Balanchine's "Allegro Brilliante", an enduring masterpiece to the music of Tchaikovsky. Next up is a powerful world premiere, "Wartime Elegy", by Alexei Ratmansky to the music of Valentin Silvestrov. The closer is a PNB favorite, "Carmina Burana" by Kent Stowell to the music of Carl Orff.

Don't miss this opportunity to celebrate PNB's half century as a world class dance company!
