A Program of Firsts

  • Serenade: As George Balanchine’s first original ballet created in the U.S., Serenade is set to the classic score of Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings in C. It incorporates unexpected rehearsal blunders into the choreography, including students falling over and arriving late.
  • Asphodel Meadows: Making its company and North American premiere, Liam Scarlett’s Asphodel Meadows presents a trio of pas de deuxs with dynamic dueling pianos. The piece continually shifts in mood, staying true to Poulenc’s score.
  • Matthew Neenan: Pennsylvania Ballet’s Choreographer in Residence, Matthew—who New York Times hailed as “one of today’s foremost dance poets”—will debut his world premiere for the company with music by Troy Herion.

About Pennsylvania Ballet


Pennsylvania Ballet has deep ties to dance history. The company was formed in 1963 by Barbara Weisberger, a protégé of the great George Balanchine. Perhaps due to that remarkable connection, the ballet's mission has always been to celebrate the classics. An annual staging of Balanchine's The Nutcracker and other favorites pay tribute to dance's traditional beauty. But the artists still look to the future of the art form, which surprisingly doesn't involve pieces set to laserbeats. The group is known for innovative takes on canonical fixtures, from a re-imagined Swan Lake to the world premiere of Matthew Neenan's Carmina Burana.
