Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Tickets

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, founded in 1969, is one of the leading American ballet companies that have created a legacy of innovation and excellence since its inception. Based in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, the company's passionate energy and eclectic style has been attributed to four incredible artistic directors. In the eighties, Patricia Wilde who has been a principal dancer at New York City Ballet, brought recognition to the company by laying emphasis on modern masters' work and their virtuosic techniques. These masters included her mentor, the renowned George Balanchine whose pieces are among the most celebrated modern works. Since 1997, the Ballet Theatre has risen to new heights under director Terrence S. Orr who has previously been the principal dancer and ballet master at American Ballet Theatre. Among Mr. Orr's manifold contributions is his creation of a strong repertoire that includes new versions of dramatic works, traditional ballets, as well as original works featuring contemporary American music. These pieces have proved to be quite expansive to the ballet art form by pushing its boundaries. With over fifty annual performances on tour and at home, the PBT audience uncovers the joy and passion of ballet. It's no surprise why the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre tickets are such a sought-after treat among ballet aficionados, all year round.

 

In 1965, choreographer Nicolas Petrov became part of the Pittsburgh Playhouse dance faculty. Three years later, he was on his way to mounting several small ballets along with his version of Nutcracker that would accommodate eighty-five students. The dance school continued to create exquisite new pieces and soon relocated to Lawrence Hall. In 1970, Pittsburgh Ballet debuted at Pittsburgh Playhouse and for the next year, it went on to present its initial subscription season at Pittsburgh's Syria Mosque. The following year, it moved to Hein Hall and by 1973 it had bought itself a building downtown, where the rehearsal studios, PBT School, and production and costumes shops could be housed. Since then the company has been reaching new developmental milestones, and in 2006 it launched the special Say it with Music campaign. The purpose of this campaign was to restore the company's orchestra that opened to significant critical acclaim with the production of Swan Lake. In the recent past, the PBT has regularly debuted new productions such as Alice in Wonderland by Derek Deane, which marked the show's North American premiere.   

 

PBT's current artistic director, Terrence S. Orr has given several new productions including that of The Nutcracker in 2002. This performance was set in the Pittsburgh of 1904 with names and sceneries portraying the city's neighborhood as well as its historical figures. In 2000, Orr started a commissioned series for contemporary ballets that were inspired by American music such as that of Ray Brown, Cole Porter, Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Bill Strayhorn and Lena Horne. He has also made efforts to showcase ballet version of famous American dramas. In 2012, the company presented the premiere of A Streetcar Named Desire with internationally recognized choreographer John Neumeier. With this production, the PBT became only the fourth company worldwide to present the dramatic piece. It also gained prominence for being the third ballet company in America to present a piece by Mr. Neumeier.

 

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre describes itself as an internationally recognized and community based professional company, which seeks to incorporate contemporary ballet with traditional ballet. By doing so, the company has developed innovative pieces. Moreover, the PBT aims at perpetuating excellence of the art form through various performances and by rigorously training its student dancers. It strives to make its performing arts accessible to everyone including people with disabilities such as physical impairment, hearing impairment, developmental disabilities or visual impairment. Its autism-friendly performance of The Lion King marked Pittsburgh as the third American city to make such an offer. Now it is also the first to offer the autism-friendly version of The Nutcracker. The company is truly dedicated to serving all members of the community and sharing the delight of ballet with them.

 

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's current performances include ballet staple, The Nutcracker; 3X3 which showcases cross-cultural fusion by combining the work of three choreographers; Swan Lake with Orchestra; Don Quixote with Orchestra; and the Evening with Twyla Tharp, among others. Book your Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre tickets and be there to experience the finesse of ballet.
