“Compellingly stylish… the really good news from Philadelphia is the way these Pennsylvanians dance.” —New York Post
Pennsylvania Ballet, established in 1963 by Barbara Weisberger, a protégée of George Balanchine, is one of the premier ballet companies in the United States and has been at the forefront of American dance since it's creation. A leading Philadelphia cultural institution, the Company has earned a national reputation for its impassioned artistry and technical virtuosity, and has received widespread critical acclaim for its performances of a diverse classical and contemporary repertoire with a Balanchine base. The energy and exuberance of its versatile dancers are the Company’s enduring signature.
Artistic Director Angel Corella, is widely regarded as one of the finest dancers of his generation. Corella began his tenure with Pennsylvania Ballet in August 2014 and has brought to Philadelphia a new level of passion and energy. During Angel Corella’s first season with Pennsylvania Ballet, he continued the Balanchine tradition while introducing progressive works, diversifying the range of repertoire performed.
"With ballet superstar Angel Corella as artistic director, with its expanding repertoire, and with its upcoming production of Don Quixote being billed by many as a can't-miss dance event, the Pennsylvania Ballet is on fire. A top-rate ballet company with a growing international reputation." —Mike Newall, Philadelphia Inquirer
