“The cancellation of performances by any cultural entity is a minor event when compared to the loss of life and ongoing illness brought on by the pandemic, yet there is no denying the rolling tragedy COVID-19 has brought to the world of performing arts and culture overall. We are so grateful for the support we’ve received throughout this crisis and we will be even more reliant on support from subscribers, donors, ticket holders and everyone who loves ballet.”

Due to the Covid-19 situation and with the health of our dancers, orchestra and audience in mind, the PA Ballet is making changes to its 2020/2021 Season:
