Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre dancers will perform two different programs, eight times during the festival.

PBT performed at the Carnegie Museum recently and the audience was extremely grateful.

“I stood next to somebody who hadn’t seen the dancers perform like that in a year, who just started crying with joy, and I think so many people were just moved and grateful to see a live performance,” PBT Artistic Director Susan Jaffee said.
