Hi Culture Connoisseurs!
Dress rehearsals are a unique opportunity to see Pacific Northwest Ballet performances in their entirety for $30 and tickets can be purchased here http://www.pnb.org/Season/Reserve/?perf=13DL04. I'm hosting another event that night and unable to attend so this event will be self-hosted. If you elect to attend the optional lecture before the performance which takes place in the Norcliffe room on the lower level from 6-6:45, you will have the opportunity to sit in the Dress Circle seats for the dress rehearsal portion which normally cost from $110-$173 (see seating chart http://www.pnb.org/Season/SeatingChart/). You will be given a ticket after the lecture which allows you to access the Dress Circle seating area. The dress rehearsal is from 7-9:30. Seats may appear to be assigned but they are actually general admission for the dress rehearsal and for the lecture. Arrive early for the best seat selection. Here is a description of the performance from the website:
"March’s ideally balanced mixed-bill delivers three repertory giants and a world premiere. Peter Boal’s desire to curate new choreographic collections paved the way for works by Ulysses Dove and Twyla Tharp to enter PNB’s repertory. In Dancing on the Front Porch of Heaven, Dove’s ode to love and loss, the pairing and parting of three couples is illuminated in still pools of white light. Aerobic-clad “stompers” and ankle-socked ballerinas convene under arena-rock haze for Tharp’s In the Upper Room, an exuberant full-court assault from the 80s. Concerto Barocco, George Balanchine’s testament to the mathematical beauty of Bach, achieves flawless form via Francia Russell, one of the first ballet masters chosen by Balanchine to stage his works. PNB’s own Paul Gibson (The Piano Dance) unveils a new pas de deux to Mozart for the Company, sensitively crafted to the dancers he knows best."
