Many ballets are credited with choreography “after Petipa,” but what does that mean? In After Petipa, presented by Works & Process at the Guggenheim, Pacific Northwest Ballet's Education Programs Manager and dance historian Doug Fullington and company dancers take a fascinating look at three famous classical duets—the Black Swan pas de deux from Swan Lake, and the Blue Bird pas de deux and Grand pas de deux from The Sleeping Beauty—to explore how they have evolved over time.

PERFORMERS: Carla Körbes, Principal; Seth Orza, Principal; James Moore, Soloist; Sarah Ricard Orza, Soloist; Jerome Tisserand, Soloist; Leta Biasucci, Corps de ballet. Made possible with the assistance of Arlene C. Cooper.
