Ballet Coast to Coast

Henry J. Leir Outdoor Stage | August 25-29

Leading artists from Boston Ballet, Houston Ballet, and Pacific Northwest Ballet take the stage in a Pillow-exclusive program that highlights the stunning range of ballet in the United States today. The program will feature performances from dancers of each company (Red Angels by Ulysses Dove, Reflections by Justin Peck, Sons de L’ame by Stanton Welch, Home Studies (for the stage) by Helen Pickett) and culminate with them performing together for the first time in Second to Last, a work by Pacific Northwest Ballet’s resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo, inspired by and set to the music of Arvo Pärt.
