September at PNB has been busy! Company dancers are back in rehearsal, the PNB School is back in session, and we’re all busy preparing for our return to McCaw Hall this month. With a mixture of joy and trepidation, we’re stretching our collective muscles, breathing deeply, and turning our eyes on the horizon. Keep scrolling to read about everything we’re up to this month!
The Nutcracker Returns
In-person tickets to George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® are on sale now! Add some sparkle and magic to your calendar this winter and reserve your seat for this holiday favorite.
Welcome New Dancers
We’re excited to welcome four new dancers to the PNB Company this year! Jonathan Batista, James Kirby Rogers, Ginabel Peterson, and Lily Wills will bring a wealth of experience and talent to the PNB stage this season. Read more about these new Company dancers on the PNB Blog.
The Digital Stage
Not ready to join us in person yet? Don’t worry! Digital single tickets to all of our 2021/22 Season are now available for purchase. You can enjoy any of our six repertory shows from the comfort of your own home, or purchase a digital subscription to make sure you catch them all!
The safety of our artists, staff, and audiences continues to be our first priority as we return to live performances. Masks and proof of vaccination (or a negative Covid test) will be required for patrons joining us in person this fall.
Our first Rep of the season, Singularly Cerrudo, opens on September 24. This performance will be subscriber-only, so if you wish to join us please consider purchasing a season subscription today.
Forge Our Future
After a challenging hiatus, we are back to McCaw Hall! If there’s anything we’ve learned in the last eighteen months, it’s that ballet can heal and inspire. You can help us continue innovating, build community through dance, and forge our future by making a gift today!
Class Is in Session!
Do you know a young dancer ready to join us in the PNB School studios? We have immediate space available in Seattle and Bellevue for children 5 and up, including a Seattle class just for young boys!
