Embrace Pennsylvania Ballet’s living legacy with a program inspired by its intrepid leaders. Former Artistic Director Robert Weiss’ Grieg: Piano Concerto receives its Company premiere. Created in 2011 for Carolina Ballet, where Weiss is now director, Grieg: Piano Concerto is romantic and pure, with 21 dancers and a sheer white curtain floating across the back of the stage.  Plus, see a World Premiere from award-winning choreographer Trey McIntyre, whose early dancemaking was showcased at the Carlisle Project, created by Pennsylvania Ballet founder Barbara Weisberger.
