I just received a note from PNB re: a special they’re running for the Director’s Choice rep that opens next week: 1 free 18-and-under ticket for those who purchase 2 standard-price adult tickets.
Here’s the scoop, in PNB’s words, plus a link to their webcast excerpt of After the Rain:
“End of School Year Special!

Pacific Northwest Ballet presents a trio of powerful works by three of the century’s most influential choreographers. Featuring the PNB Orchestra.
Dances at a Gathering* (Frederic Chopin/Jerome Robbins)
A major PNB acquisition, Dances has been praised as “essential Robbins…just music and dance create a world of sunlight and open air.” (The New York Times).
After the Rain pas de deux* (Arvo Pärt/Christopher Wheeldon)
Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain pas de deux rendered audiences breathless at its premiere. “Spare and poignant, the duet intimates a renewal of faith, the reburgeoning of love.” (The Village Voice).
Symphony in C (Georges Bizet/George Balanchine)
A grand season finale, Symphony in C’s neoclassical splendor displays the full Company’s technical prowess and the genius of George Balanchine.”
