The company just announced a set of lecture-demonstration programs for the autumn, among them what looks like a repeat of Doug Fullington's excellent "Balanchine's Petipa" from last season -- some of the best time I spent watching dance all year.
From the press release:
Thursday, September 18
5:30 pm, McCaw Hall
Choreographer Twyla Tharp will discuss her new works for PNB, with excerpts performed onstage by Company dancers. Ms. Tharp will also field questions from the audience.

Tickets to this special event are $20.
