PNB – Themes & Variations

The season’s final mixed bill promises intriguing variety. Balanchine’s resplendent Theme and Variations represents the height of classical purity and elegance, while his zesty Tarantella pas de deux dazzles with virtuoso fun. In Jose Limon’s masterpiece, The Moor’s Pavane—a reduction of Shakespeare’s Othello—riveting characterizations cast a powerful spell. The line-up is joined by the return of our own Price Suddarth’s electric Signature.
