Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre "An Evening with Twyla Tharp" with discounts & bonuses

Set to the iconic songs of Frank Sinatra and riveting works of Philip Glass, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre (PBT) presents a choreographic power couple by Tony and Emmy award-winning choreographer Twyla Tharp, whose lifetime achievement has also made here a Kennedy Center Honoree.

In 'Nine Sinatra Songs', Tharp blends ballet and ballroom movement, elevating the glamour and finesse of social dancing to a dance theatre quality.

Driven by Philip Glass’s rhythmic score, 'In the Upper Room' melds ballet and modern dance in a powerful tour de force described by Tharp as “fierce, driving and relentless.”

Experience a choreographic power couple when PBT presents two works by Tony and Emmy award-winning choreographer Twyla Tharp. The two works include 'In the Upper Room' set to the music of Philip Glass along with 'Nine Sinatra Songs'

Described by Tharp as “fierce, driving and relentless,” In the Upper Room melds ballet and modern dance in a powerful tour de force driven by Philip Glass’s rhythmic score.

    I was there Friday night but couldn't find the group.

      I think most folks were on their own Friday night... I really enjoyed the performance and hope to do another ballet again soon!

    Powerful "In the Upper Room" made the evening--one I would not have attended without the meetup discount

    I did attend last night too but didn't see the message where everyone was meeting until today! Guess I'll meet everyone next time

    There will be a big crowd tonight.

    If we haven't met before, I'll be wearing something that will hopefully be easy to spot -- a brown sportcoat with black shirt and jeans.

    Also, if you have any questions, perhaps the Benedum staff can direct you to the PBT table where you could ask for Danny Vereb for help. I'll also speak to others at the PBT table in the lobby.

    I'm a bit confused. Is the invitation plus discount for any of the three performances, or just for Friday night?

    October 8, 2013

    • Mark

      We've also posted separate Meetup events for the Saturday and Sunday performances. The Friday posting contains all the info so we could just intially announce it once (instead of 3 separate announcements). People can sign up for any of the 3 shows to get the discount plus enjoy the little bonuses depending on when they decide to attend.

      Although, I may like to attend this event, I cannot; I don't have the money to do so! Julia

    Hi Suzanne,

    The promo code PBTMEETUP is applicable to all three performances. It is a 30% discount off of regular ticket prices.

    If you would like to participate in the ballroom dancing class on Saturday or Sunday prior to the performance, please use promo code PBTBALLROOM (also a 30% discount) and shoot me an email ([masked]) or give me a call [masked]) to let me know that you are attending as space is limited. I hope this helps.

  • Danny V.

    We should be all set with promo code PBTMEETUP. Please let me know if you have any issues.

    Danny

  • Danny V.

    Good morning! We are having some technical issues with the PBTMEETUP promo code. I will let you all know when it is available. In the meantime, if you would like to purchase tickets, please feel free to call me at[masked] or [masked]. Thanks!
