Pacific Northwest Ballet

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

April 12 – 21, 2019

Family Matinee Series

PNB’s production of Shakespeare’s comedy charms everyone who enters its enchanted realm. Deep in a Northwest-inspired fairy kingdom, a quarrel between the King Oberon and Queen Titania sparks mayhem when mischief-maker Puck mismatches mortal lovers and causes Titania to romance donkey-headed Bottom. All’s well that ends well by Act II, which opens with Mendelssohn’s famous Wedding March and celebrates ideal love with some of Balanchine’s most beautiful choreography. Featuring the PNB Orchestra.

Themes & Variations

May 31 – JUNE 9, 2019

The season’s final mixed bill promises intriguing variety. Balanchine’s resplendent Theme & Variations represents the height of classical purity and elegance, while his zesty Tarantella pas de deux dazzles with virtuoso fun. In Jose Limon’s masterpiece, The Moor’s Pavane—a reduction of Shakespeare’s Othello—riveting characterizations cast a powerful spell. The line-up is joined by the return of our own Price Suddarth’s electric Signature.
