For the 6th program of its 44th season, PNB presents three of the most significant names in ballet: George Balanchine’s classical La Source is a hybrid work, drawn from several earlier ballets and first presented as a showcase for the legendary dancer Violette Verdy. Opus 19/The Dreamer, by Jerome Robbins, is a much darker work, an emotional and physical marathon with enormous awards for audience and artist alike. The evening closes with Alexei Ratmansky’s ravishing Pictures at an Exhibition. Like the Kandinsky watercolors that set the stage, ten dancers move in varying combinations to display a plethora of emotion, from raw and wild to solemn and soulful in this work, which will be staged for PNB by the acclaimed former NYCB principal dancer Wendy Whelan. PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION plays for seven performances only, June 2– 11 at McCaw Hall.Running time is 2 hours.
