Welcome to PNB’s November program and the place in our season we often mark by presenting new and contemporary work – a very PNB counterpoint to The Nutcracker immersion already taking place in our studios. This program is also an excellent expression of the interconnectedness of the dance world.
Welcome to the first repertory program of PNB's 51st season, and the beginning of the fall arts season in Seattle. Like the start of a new school year, this phase of our season is full of promise, some uncertainty (we love snow, for example, but not so much during The Nutcracker...), and excitement around anticipated moments ahead. Like many of you, I can't wait to see the return of Crystal Pite's The Seasons' Canon, Donald Byrd's Love and Loss, and Kent Stowell's mesmerizing Swan Lake, among others.
