Alastair Macaulay reviews Pennsylvania Ballet's Director's Choice program:
The company has a distinguished tradition (plenty of well-staged Balanchines, including its annual “Nutcracker”) going back to its founding director, Barbara Weisberger.
In its resident choreographer, Matthew Neenan, it has one of the freshest and most remarkable American ballet choreographers based outside New York. Another American, Trey McIntyre, made a world premiere that was the most remarkable feature of this triple bill. How will the company change under its next director?
