Tradition - Glamour - Spectacle

Experience the genius of the man who reinvented ballet. Our final program of the season celebrates the 20th century’s greatest choreographer, George Balanchine, with three of his masterpieces – the lush Ballet Imperial, evocative Who Cares?, and dazzling Symphony in C. Set to music by Tchaikovsky, Gershwin, and Bizet, this exciting and elegant program demonstrates both the unmatched artistry of Balanchine and his profound influence on Pennsylvania Ballet.

Breathtaking Balanchine is currently available as part of a 2019/2020 Season subscription. Single tickets will be available later this summer.
