After more than a year since the curtain came down abruptly on Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s 50th Anniversary Season, PBT Artistic Director Susan Jaffe has announced a 2021-2022 Season that brings ballet back to the Benedum Center and August Wilson African American Cultural Center. PBT’s triumphant return to the theater ignites innovative voices, revisits beloved classical ballets and brings fan favorites to life on stage. This will be the first complete theater season planned by Jaffe, who took the helm as the company’s seventh artistic director in June 2020.
“I’m so happy to be able to bring ballet safely back to the theater with a season full of programs I’m truly excited about,” Jaffe said. “This season celebrates the dynamic work of courageous, passionate and creative choreographers, and shows the full depth and breadth of the art form.”
“PBT’s ‘Here + Now’ program celebrates women who have contributed important work to our art form. A full program choreographed by women is still uncommon, and I’m thrilled to bring their talent, passion and artistry to Pittsburgh.”
