Director’s Choice 2019 Premieres at PNB
March 15, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$37
Pacific Northwest Ballet presents its second mixed-bill of the 2018-19 season at McCaw Hall: Director’s Choice. Artistic Director Peter Boal has chosen a showcase of works by “dancemakers who are evolving the art form.” The three works of the night include new commissions for the company by choreographers Robyn Mineko Williams and Matthew Neenan.
Lastly, opening night will see the PNB premiere of In the Countenance of Kings, an ambitious work for 18 dancers by choreographer Justin Peck, set to a score by Sufjan Stevens. Following its 2016 premiere, Janice Berman of San Francisco Classical Voice wrote: “While Peck’s is an original voice, as is Stevens’, it was impossible not to be reminded of collaborations between Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein such as On the Town and West Side Story; the new piece has that urban thrust, coupled with a persistently glorious rhythmic intensity. And likeability.”
