Grace and Grandeur
April 5-8, 2018
Merriam Theater

Theme and Variations by George Balanchine
Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
This is Balanchine’s tribute to the splendor of ballet in Imperial Russia—an homage to the elegance of pure, classical ballet set to Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous score. 

Paquita by Marius Petipa
Music by Ludwig Minkus
This series of dances from the second act of the full- length ballet displays the solid technique and dazzling footwork required of our female dancers. 

For Four by Christopher Wheeldon
Music by Franz Schubert
This piece was originally created for four of the best male dancers in the world (including Artistic Director Angel Corella) from four di erent schools of dance: Cuban, Russian, Danish and American—the Balanchine style. Each movement demonstrates the di erent styles of dance and highlights how men have taken their place in the ballet world. 

Grace & Grandeur, evokes a sense of gilded glamour. George Balanchine’s Theme and Variations provides an unparalleled experience, complete with glittering costumes and challenging, beautiful choreography. Christopher Wheeldon’s For Four returns to the Philadelphia stage, an exciting piece that highlights the strength of Pennsylvania Ballet’s male dancers. Paquita, a romantic production with Spanish flair, rounds out this springtime program.
