PBT's "An Evening with Twyla Tharp" with Discounts, Dance Lessons & After Party!

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.”

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 enjoyed the discount. The performance was quite short. Had a nice time. Thx.

    There will be a big crowd tonight. The show is fantastic -- and everyone gave it a standing ovation last night. The show is not too long about 1 hour 40 minutes including one 20-minute intermission.

    I won't be able to attend the performance tonight --- but 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. Danny is shown as the Event Host for tonight -- and be sure to thank him for the great discount and pre-show ballroom dance lessons. If you're going at 6:30 PM for the lessons, please call or email Danny Vereb at[masked] or [masked]
