The Joyce Theater Presents

Pacific Northwest Ballet

June 22 - 26, 2022

From June 22-26, 2022, The Joyce Theater returns to Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater to present Pacific Northwest Ballet, led since 2005 by former New York City Ballet principal dancer Peter Boal. The anticipated return of the company will feature two unique programs, with ballets created by Alejandro Cerrudo, Ulysses Dove, Crystal Pite, and Twyla Tharp.

Dancing on the Front Porch of Heaven (Odes to Love and Loss), Dove’s poetic monument to those he has loved, set to the score of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, is juxtaposed with Pite’s Plot Point, a chilling choreographic exploration of the cinematic score of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.

PNB Resident Choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo’s Little mortal jump melds technicality with theatricality in a dynamic work of unexpected twists and turns. Rounding out the program, Twyla Tharp’s Waiting at the Station, set to songs by R&B legend Allen Toussaint, follows a man in 1940s New Orleans as he attempts to connect with his son before he must surrender to the three gilded Fates that seek him out.

All performances will be accompanied by the PNB Orchestra under the music direction of Principal Conductor Emil de Cou.

Tickets range in price from $40 to $130. In celebration of The Joyce’s 40th Anniversary and PNB’s 50th Anniversary, the majority of tickets will be offered for $40 and $50 to audiences.


Gala Performance

Opening the special engagement, The Joyce Theater celebrates its Annual Gala on June 22, featuring Twyla Tharp’s Waiting at the Station and George Balanchine’s classic masterpiece Diamonds, with the iconic Tchaikovsky score. The Joyce will honor two individuals this evening: Denise Littlefield Sobel, President of Tikkun Olam Foundation, Inc., and Toni Hoover of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and trustee of The Joyce Theater and Pacific Northwest Ballet.
