We have season tickets and always try and take friends. The PNB has made great strides in creating new ballets. The new season has a great line up program for fall plus th Nutcracker which was all new last year.

The PNB just keeps getting better and better. We particularly enjoy the contemporary ballets and their choreography. We also appreciate the broad scheduling-we travel a considerable distance and appreciate the matinees.

While visiting our daughter and family, we attended the Nutcracker Ballet at a Saturday afternoon performance. It was absolutely fantastic. The costumes, dancing and excellent orchestra made for a wonderful afternoon.
