Pacific Northwest Ballet’s 40th Anniversary Season comes to a close with Director’s Choice, which features a world premiere and a tribute to one of ballet’s ‘greats’.

The triple-bill presents a world premiere (currently untitled) by Christopher Wheeldon, a contemporary ballet choreographer known his prolific versatility, as well as two works by George Balanchine. “Mr. B’s” Agon returns, expertly staged by Francia Russell and as startlingly avant-garde as its 1957 premiere. Then, the program’s dazzling grand finale is Diamonds, the crowning gemstone of Balanchine’s three-part Jewels.

Running for seven performances only, Director’s Choice will begin May 31 at Seattle Center’s Marion Oliver McCaw Hall.
