Founded in 2005, BalletX is Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet company.  In the ensemble’s Jacob’s Pillow debut, they perform choreographer Matthew Neenan and composer Rosie Langabeer’s ballet Sunset, o639 Hours. This narrative evening-length work interprets the dramatic, true story of pilot Edwin Musick’s 1938 inaugural airmail flight across the Pacific.  With stunning dancers and an onstage cabaret-style band, audiences will be transported by the rich sights and sounds of pre-World War II New Zealand, Samoa, and Hawaii through this beautiful and intensely personal narrative of loss, longing, and paradise.

Tickets: $69, $59, $39
