Over the past two weeks, I have been overwhelmed by positive feedback to PNB’s recent ALL WHEELDON program. This season-opening program was an artistic milestone for the dancers and orchestra, as well as Mr. Wheeldon. Many audience members emailed us their responses to the show and those are now posted on PNB.org’s audience reviews page. I hope you all will take a moment to read through some of them because they represent the types of artistic experiences I want audiences to have with our Company.
I applaud PNB patrons for recognizing the importance of seeing works by today's innovative choreographers. This open-minded approach to new artistic experiences and emerging artists both sustains and advances this art form. My sincere thanks to all of you who support PNB by attending live performances, and particularly those of you who take a chance and come to see something new.
If you missed ALL WHEELDON, do not despair. His work will be back on the McCaw Hall stage again in the near future. If you are already looking forward to seeing more new work by contemporary choreographers, I recommend you get tickets for our NEW WORKS program in March. I am already looking forward to reading those audience reviews.
