I raised 5 boys and, finally, 15 years ago, a granddaughter to take to the ballet (couldn't talk my boys into it, although there are many boys who attend). My 15-year old granddaughter has been attending the PNB Nutcracker with me since she was two, we loved the Maurice Sendak Nutcracker and were so afraid when the production was changed... More

I am a season ticket holder and could not be happier. Every performance is a feast for the eyes. I love how they always surprise the audience by being innovative, using humor, and making bold choices with choreographers. There is something for all tastes. My favorite is Romeo and Juliette. The dance and music tell the story with emotion and... More

The PNB is a world class ballet in which the music becomes a visual as well as an auditory experience. PNB provides supports for your their youngest ballet-goers: easy to manage seat cushion to give the little people some height, hands on activities related to the ballet prior to the curtain. There is no joy greater than to share the... More

I took my granddaughter to PNB's Le Corsaire which is a pirate story for kids. Everything about it was great. There were activities in the lobby including musicians that allowed children to try the instruments and now she wants to learn the harp. The dancing was outstanding as were the costumes. We sat in a box which made for great... More

Extremely enjoyed watching Coppelia. Amazing dancers and very enjoyable show. From the dancing to the costumes and choreography, all were excellent. Highly recommend seeing PNB.

We've been to several performances at PNB and enjoyed each one. One performance in fact, will stick with me for the rest of my life - a stunning work by a new student choreographer done to the music of Olafur Arnalds (Film Credits and Fyrsta). Wow! The dancers and company are dedicated and wonderful. The school was a great place... More

I was invited to the Matinee Ballet Performance March 27th. We listened to the Q & A session prior to the Ballet selections, which really helped! The 3 Ballet performances were spectacular! They were innovative, highly athletic, & dramatic! We also went to the Q & A session after the performances. We enjoyed hearing from the 2 Ballerinas, about their... More

This is a bit of a story: It all started when I was in my thirties and I went to the ballet to impress a young lady whom I wanted to date. She was way out of my league and, in all honesty, I was trying to hard...However - My first Ballet changed my view of what ballet was. The... More

We just went for a performance of Romeo et Juliette. As usual, parking and good dining in the area were easy to find. Also as usual, the hall itself is a lovely, modern space, with fun ballet related shopping, food and drink locations, readily accessible bathrooms, and modern decor. This can get a bit odd at times -- approaching the... More

I will not be returning because of the poor Nutcracker performance I saw earlier this month. I was a fan of the previous version and was supportive of new sets and costumes, both of which delivered exceptionally. The Balanchine choreography only sits minutely above community theater as a good Nutcracker. The choreography is dumbed down and children are featured more... More
