Press Play: The Directorial Debut of Angel Corella

October 16, 2014 to October 26, 2014 Academy of Music

Pennsylvania Ballet starts a new era with Press Play: The Directorial Debut of Angel Corella. The first program curated by the Company’s new Artistic Director showcases some of the world’s best choreographers and the dancers’ technical precision and artistry. Presented for the first time outside Russia by Pennsylvania Ballet, Jeu de Cartes creates a bold, abstract expression of Stravinsky’s score of the same name, which translates to “The Card Game.” Also on the series are three magnificent works: George Balanchine’s joyous Allegro Brillante, the Company premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s passionate and intimate Liturgy, and Jerome Robbins’ Other Dances, originally created for Mikhail Baryshnikov and Natalia Makarova.
