Balanchine/Wheeldon/Tharp at the Pennsylvania Ballet
Revel in ballet’s boundless potential with an evening of three diverse works. The legendary Twyla Tharp anchors this program with the quirky and fun “Push Comes to Shove,” originally created for Mikhail Baryshnikov and featuring Tharp’s trademark theatrical style. The Company Premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s compelling and intimate “After the Rain” showcases inventive partnering and heartfelt emotion. George Balanchine’s “Square Dance”, a favorite of many dancers, marries the structure of American folk dance with the grace of classical ballet.
