Pacific Northwest Ballet Comes to the Seattle Public Library!

17 Nov

Can’t decide which production you want to see? PNB is sending out a representative to the Central Branch to talk about what’s on the PNB calendar, show a few clips, and answer questions! It’s free!

Plan now to attend the free lunchtime previews of Pacific Northwest Ballet’s wonderfully adventurous 2008-2009 season.
PNB’s Education Programs manager, Doug Fullington, will offer entertaining insights on the ballets, complete with video excerpts.
These lecture/video previews take place at noon at the Central Library, Microsoft Auditorium, level 1. Tickets are not required and everyone is welcome!
