Last year, we developed a great relationship with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and we are excited to give you some information on their 2012-2013 season.  This past weekend, PBT kicked off the season with Giselle, the stirring tale of of a young girl who is betrayed by her lover and dies of a broken heart. Giselle rises from the dead for vengeance, but in the end protects her sorrowful lover from the deadly Willis- evil spirits who haunt the forest in the night. (See photos of Alexandra Kochis and Christopher Budzynski in this performance below.)

The Nutcracker will run from December 7-30, 2012 at the Benedum Center. The holiday season wouldn't be complete without PBT's The Nutcracker.  Now in it's 11th season, this Pittsburgh-themed production features dazzling costumes, a larger-than-life Christmas tree, more than 80 dancers, and Tchaikovsky's timeless score.  

Moulin Rouge- The Ballet will run from February 14-17, 2013 at the Benedum Center. Turn of the century Paris...a city of exquisite contradiction.  The heady elixir of personal freedom bred lifestyles both reckless and addictive. Drawn to Paris by the city's passion, a flame fueled by the hearts of lovers and the souls of poets, tempt fate as you seek love and destiny at the infamous cabaret- The Moulin Rouge. 

Unspoken will run from March 8-17, 2013 at the August Wilson Center. Join PBT and the August Wilson Center for a night of captivating choreography by three masters: George Balanchine, Anthony Tudor, and Mark Morris.  Featuring Tudor's Lilac Garden, Balanchine's dynamic classical work, Valse Fantasie, and Mark Morris' Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes, this evening's choreography speaks in ways words cannot.  

Finally, Cinderella, will run April 19-21, 2013 at the Benedum Center. With a happily ever after, PBT closes its 2012-2013 season with Cinderella. Dazzling sets, shimmering costumes, enchanting fairies, and evil stepsisters, this world-famous fairy tale is the perfect fit. This production features our live orchestra playing Sergei Prokofiev's magnificent score. 

Prices range from $60- $478 and can be purchased by calling 412-454-9107 or by visiting www.pbt.org

  2. I wish I had taken ballet when I was younger. I remember a childhood friend of mine was always in tap/ jazz/ ballet and there were professional portraits of her in dance uniforms plastered all around their house.
