Concerto Barocco
Choreography by George Balanchine
Music by Johann Sebastian Bach

First produced in 1941, Concerto Barocco is hailed as one of Balanchine's masterpieces. The neoclassical ballet is danced to Johann Sebastian Bach's Double Violin Concerto in D Minor and features a prominently female ensemble of ten Pennsylvania Ballet dancers that embody athleticism, precision and grace.

Cast B: Featuring Paloma Berjano Torrado, Emily Davis, Siobhan Howley, Mine Kusano, Sophie Savas-Carstens, Julia-Rose Sherrill, Julia Vinez, and Emily Wilson

Choreography by Stanton Welch AM
Music by Johann Sebastian Bach

Welch's Clear is a beautiful abstract piece that draws inspiration from the emotionally impactful events of September 11. The ballet explores what is most important in life and finding clarity when faced with one’s final moment.

Cast B: Etienne Diaz, Ausitn Eyler, Isaac Hollis, Nayara Lopes, Cory Ogdahl, Nick Patterson, Pau Pujol, and Jack Sprance

Suspended in Time
