Celebrating Rachel Foster and Jonathan Porretta

Join PNB for an evening that will celebrate the careers of PNB’s retiring principal dancers Rachel Foster and Jonathan Porretta. The program will feature PNB’s entire Company, along with the world-famous PNB Orchestra under the baton of Music Director/Principal Conductor Emil de Cou. Highlights of the evening will include Ms. Foster in Alejandro Cerrudo’s haunting Silent Ghost, and Mr. Porretta dancing the title role of George Balanchine’s Prodigal Son

“Season Encore is a grand celebration of the entire Company,” said PNB Artistic Director Peter Boal. “This year’s performance will also shine a spotlight on two much-admired principal dancers who have helped to define repertoire from the last two decades at PNB. The list of roles performed by Rachel Foster and Jonathan Porretta is extensive and brimming with dear memories and extraordinary ovations. Rachel and Jonny have helped to select meaningful works for themselves, but also ballets that showcase all of their peers. It promises to be a night to remember.”
