Pacific Northwest Ballet's 40th anniversary season features a combination of world premiers and ballet classics.
Everett native Andrew Bartee, a dancer in PNB's company, has choreographed a work that will premier alongside new pieces by Mark Morris, Kiyon Gaines and Margaret Mullin.
The company plans to stage Kent Stowell's "Swan Lake," and "Cinderella," plus Jean-Christophe Maillot's "Romeo et Juliette."
December marks the month-long return of "Nutcracker," and "Hansel and Gretel" is scheduled as a matinee-only performance in March.
"Modern Masterpieces," brings works by Twyla Tharp and George Balanchine, and "Director's Choice" will feature more Balanchine, as well as a world premier by Christopher Wheeldon.
Additional performance include a one-night only "Celebrate Seattle" in September, that will include special guests and multi-media, as PNB casts back on four decades of innovation and dance in Seattle.
PNB also is touring the next year. Their schedule include performances in Spoleto, Italy, in July; at the Guggenheim in New York in September; at the Nevada Ballet Theatre in October; at City Center Theatre in New York in February; and at the Royal Theatre in Victoria, B.C., in February.
The PNB 2012 to 2013 season:
• "Cinderella": Music by Sergei Prokofiev with choreography by Kent Stowell; "Circus Polka," music by Igor Stravinsky and choreography by Jermon Robbins (Sept. 21 only); Sept. 21 to 30.
• "Celebrate Seattle": PNB celebrates 40 years; Sept. 30.
• "All Premiere": Works by Andrew Bartee, Margaret Mullin, Mark Mooris and Kiyon Gaines; Nov. 2 to 11.
• "The Nutcracker": Music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky and choreography by Kent Stowell. Sets and costumes by Maurice Sendak; Dec. 7 to 29.
• "Romeo et Juliette": Music by Sergei Prokofiev and choreography by Jean-Christophe Maillot; Feb. 1 to 10.
• "Modern Masterpieces": Works by George Balanchine, Ulysses Dove and Twyla Tharp. Premier by Paul Gibson; March 15 to 24.
• Hansel and Gretel: Family matinee; March 17 to 23.
