In addition to our annual performances of The Nutcracker, we also present our Spring Gala performances in late April/early May, featuring a wide selection of classical and contemporary ballets. These have included such classics as Coppelia, La Bayadere, Swan Lake & The Sleeping Beauty, as well as works from George Balanchine including Divertimento No. 15, Harlequinade, Raymonda Variations, Serenade, Valse Fantaisie, Walpurgisnacht Ballet, and Who Cares?. Our repertoire also includes Jerome Robbins’ Circus Polka, and Peter Martins’ Eight Easy Pieces. Performances also include new choreography from the Ballet Academy of Pittsburgh faculty.
