I've known the Co for many years. I've enjoyed their dancing and some of their productions. Their style was based on a Balanchine repertoire. In the past, a most memorable performance was C. Wheeldon staging of Swan Lake with Riolama Lorenzo in 2003; and in 2007, M. Neenan's Carmina Burana, also featuring Ms Lorenzo Since September of 2014, Ángel Corella... More

I saw the new production of Cinderella. What a nice production. Was able to get last minute tickets at the box office 2 hours before for only $15 down on the main floor. Would suggest to sit in the first balcony instead. The seats are not on an incline, so it is hard to see if you are sitting too... More

for available dates and tickets. We called the PA ballet directly and asked them how we could get the best seats available and they surely helped us out. This is an amazingly beautiful and magical show. Purchase your tickets early for best seats and best deals. They also have a sit down tea party on one special date but we... More

I was transformed to a child again. The Pennsylvania Ballet did an amazing job with the Nutcracker. I have never been to a professional ballet before, and I was charmed by the entire experience. There was an exquisite crystal chandelier in the center of the ceiling, so pretty. I think most of the seats are good, but there are some... More

You cannot go wrong with a performance by this company. The dancers are among the best in the nation and the orchestra is top notch. The tickets may seem pricey, but you get first class performances in the beautiful Academy of Music in the heart of Philadelphia. Well worth the cost.

This was my first time seeing the Pennsylvania Ballet and I was very impressed. As always, whenever I leave a ballet performance I feel like a total schlub and this was no different! haha What was very cool about this performance was that it was a Director's Choice so I had no idea what to expect. Normally I go to... More

I recently saw the Pennsylvania Ballet for the first time. I wasn't sure what to expect and actually wasn't thrilled to be going. It was the Director's Choice. It was MAGNIFICENT! The dancers performed 3 ballets. First was more of a romantic ballet. The second was a new, upbeat ballet, and the third was a classic. When I left, I... More
