Academy of Music

Don’t miss a special 50th Anniversary Season encore presentation of John Butler’s Carmina Burana. A signature of the Pennsylvania Ballet repertoire since the 1960s and performed with a live chorus, Butler’s Carmina remains contemporary and fresh today. The evening opens with the Company premiere of Balanchine’s Stravinsky Violin Concerto. One of Balanchine’s black and white ballets, this work showcases its choreographer and composer’s legendary collaborative relationship.
