Graceful Swans

There are still some tickets remaining for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's performance of Swan Lake, on April 16-18. (We have long booked tickets to the symphony this weekend, though I am hoping I can convince my husband to partake in two cultural events in a row.)

The classic Tchaikovsky piece was first performed in 1877 in Moscow and is known for its breathtaking costumes and choreography that makes your heart skip a beat.

Here's a look at the costume design. Intensive labor and lots of layers.

Other events from the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre:

In conjunction with the Friday performance is a Young Professionals Happy Hour prior to the show at the Westin. $20 per person includes parking and drink tickets.

As a benefit to the PBT School, a brunch will be held in Shadyside at Palm Place this Sunday from 11am to 1pm. Lilly, bellinis and ballet!
