Notes from DDP: This is how to move forward post pandemic, with interesting new work and both existing commissions and world premieres from women choreographers. Congrats to Hubbard Street Dance Company alums Alejandro Cerrudo and Robyn Minenko Williams from your fans in Chicago!

Following a year that nobody wants to revisit anytime soon, Artistic Director Peter Boal has optimistically announced the line-up for Pacific Northwest Ballet’s 49th season, running from September 2021 to June 2022. A love letter to PNB’s loyal fans, highlights of PNB’s return to the McCaw Hall stage include full-evening programs devoted to the works of Alejandro Cerrudo and Twyla Tharp, PNB premieres by Alonzo King and Justin Peck and a world premiere by Robyn Mineko Williams, the triumphant return of classic story ballets Swan Lake and Roméo et Juliette, as well as works by Ulysses Dove, Jessica Lang, and Crystal Pite. (And, of course, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®.) PNB will continue to offer its digital subscription as well – during the past pandemic year the company’s offerings were viewed by ballet fans in every state and 34 countries – although the digital season will not run day-and-date with the live performances. (Details to be announced.) Full-season subscribers will have access to the digital season as part of their subscription.
PNB is currently accepting season subscription renewals and new digital-season subscription orders; new subscriptions, single tickets to the season, and George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® will go on sale to the public later this summer. For further information, contact the PNB Box Office by phone at 206.441.2424, or online at PNB.org. As always, everything is subject to change. For further details, see “SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION” and “F.A.Q.s,” below.
