February 25, 2017

Based on Czech playwright's Alexander Ostrovsky's play Groza (The Storm), Leos Janacek's hauntingly dark opera in three acts is a tale of passion, betrayal and loneliness. With compositions inspired by the story's Slavic roots in folk culture, the story focuses on the young, bored wife Katya, whose imposing mother in law meddles in her life to the extreme. When at last she succumbs to temptation, events unfold at a harrowing speed, with tragic consequences.

Three works including a world premiere comprise this mixed repertory program, the fourth of the PNB season at McCaw Hall. Jessica Lang arrives from the East Coast with an arresting new piece of original work, Her Door to the Sky, commissioned in 2016 especially for the Seattle-based company, first glimpsed at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in August. William Forsythe's New Suite is an adapted version of his work for Dresden Semperoper Ballet, composed of pas de deux, and Empire Noir by David Dawson, originally created for Dutch National Ballet in 2015.

A glorious celebration of five thousand years of Chinese culture, Shen Yun presents colorful and exhilarating performances of classical Chinese dance and music, integrating technique and influence from both East and West. A performance by Shen Yun is a presentation of traditional Chinese culture as it once was: a study in grace, wisdom, and the virtues distilled from an ancient feudal period of time.

When you think of Broadway, tap shoes and glossy show-stopping ballad probably come to mind, yet the worlds of The Great White Way and ballet also have a very close connection. Pacific Northwest Ballet present three ballet pieces that have intimate connections to New York's finest shows, including Balanchine's Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, which appeared at the end of Richard Rodgers musical On Your Toes.

Pursued by a serpent in a strange land between the sun and the moon, Prince Tamino soon finds himself at the centre of a wild adventure when he is saved by the mysterious handmaidens of the commanding Queen of the Night.
