This program highlights internationally acclaimed choreographers whose work will excite audiences with innovative, thought-provoking and athletic performances.

Spanish dancer/choreographer Nacho Duato’s “Duende” (which means “elf” in Spanish), lives up to its name with sculptural and otherworldly choreography keenly adapted to an ethereal score written by French composer Claude Debussy (1862-1918).

American choreographer Helen Pickett’s “The Exiled” takes a departure from the ballet norms with a dramatic story that examines the complexity of human morality through a combination of ballet and narration.

Finally, Spanish dancer/choreographer Goyo Montero’s “Alrededor No Hay Nada” pushes the boundaries of human physicality with this stirring and poetic piece that showcases the dancers’ athleticism.

Presented by the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, which has been staging professional ballet in Pittsburgh since 1969.
