Pennsylvania Ballet: Carrying Tradition Forward

Pennsylvania Ballet, this week, performs the penultimate program of its 50th-anniversary year. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, the season reflects a philosophy that encourages innovation while building on tradition and the specific talents of the company.

Listen back to a longer interview at the start of the Pennsylvania Ballet's 50th anniversary year, when the company's Artistic Director Roy Kaiser talked about his programming philosophy with WRTI's Susan Lewis.

Pennsylvania Ballet performs a program called Director's Choice - Thursday, May 8th through Sunday afternoon, May 11th at the Academy of Music.  It features The Accidental, which is a world premiere by choreographer Trey McIntyre, as well as Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain, and Robert Weiss’ ballet Greig: Piano Concerto.
