PNB opens its 2014-15 season with Jewels

Emeralds, Rubies, Diamonds…. Pacific NW Ballet opens the 2014-15 season with George Balanchine’s  Jewels.   Five of the original dancers from the 1967 premiere were at PNB this summer, staging the work -  a sweet reunion of some of the biggest names in ballet.  Artistic Director Peter Boal previews Jewels, November’s Director’s Choice, the final  Stowell-Sendak Nutcracker, and Don Quixote in January (with a nod to PNB’s resident orchestra, celebrating its 25th anniversary this season).

A Flamenco Antigone, Branford Marsalis goes Baroque, world music pop superstars, a dance meditation on technology and intimacy, pianist Jon Kimura Parker dips into film score fantasias, and Mark O’Connor for Christmas – this season’s offerings from the UW World Series are as eclectic and enticing as ever.  Marta talks with Artistic Director Michelle Witt about their fall season.   



Hear all about it! From theatre to dance and visual arts to film, the Arts Channel Library houses some of the most exciting and unique past and present conversations in town. Interviews are organized by genre.
