Classic Arts News   Wheeldon's Swan Lake to Return to Pennsylvania Ballet in 2005-06
 
Pennsylvania Ballet will open its 2005-06 season with Christopher Wheeldon's version of Swan Lake, a hit for the company when it premiered in June 2004.

The Philadelphia-based company will also perform Swan Lake at the Edinburgh Festival in August, in its overseas debut.

Matthew Neenen's 11:11, which premiered this month, will also return, paired with Ulysses Dove's Red Angel on a program in February 2006.

The season will include three programs of George Balanchine's work: The Nutcracker in December, A Midsummer Night's Dream in April 2006, and a triple bill of Western Symphony, Prodigal Son, and Themes and Variations in February.

A program in March will feature James Kudelka's version of The Firebird and former artistic director Christopher d'Amboise's Franklin Court, revived as part of the celebration of the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin's birth.
