You'll leave the night in a thousand pieces
You might have been waiting four years for this moment, but it's finally here. Alejandro Cerrudo will guide the Pacific Northwest Ballet into spring with his work, One Thousand Pieces. The ballet was created as a celebration of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's 35th anniversary and was inspired by the beauty of stained glass and the reflections it makes on the coming together of humanity. The work will be accompanied by compositions from Golden Globe winner Phillip Glass, whose previous works include the scores for the Qatsi trilogy and King Lear. A must-see for all ballet fans, new and old alike!
The Spanish-born, Chicago-based Cerrudo is an award-winning choreographer whose works have been performed by many prestigious companies such as the Stuttgart Ballet. He was named as the Pacific Northwest Ballet's first Resident choreographer by the artistic director of the PNB, Peter Boal.
