Principal casting announced for Pacific Northwest Ballet engagement at New York City Center, Feb 24—27 



The renowned Pacific Northwest Ballet, under the direction of Artistic Director Peter Boal, returns to New York City Center February 24—27 with two repertory programs that reflect the company’s reputation for inspired stagings of works by George Balanchine, paired with some of the finest works in contemporary ballet.

The first program offers a trio of Balanchine masterpieces—Square Dance, which premiered at City Center in 1957, Prodigal Son, and Stravinsky Violin Concerto. The second program features David Dawson’s A Million Kisses to my Skin, William Forsythe’s The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, and Crystal Pite’s Emergence. The PNB Orchestra, under the direction of Music Director and Principal Conductor Emil de Cou, will accompany both programs.
