Pacific Northwest Ballet Artistic Director Peter Boal has announced the line-up for PNB’s 52nd season, running from September 2024 through June 2025. The centerpiece of the season will be PNB’s world premiere production of The Sleeping Beauty, staged by Boal in collaboration with dance historian Doug Fullington and a design team with some of the leading artists of our time.

Other highlights include the return of JeanChristophe Maillot’s timeless Roméo et Juliette, a triple-bill of Balanchine classics, and Crystal Pite’s thrilling Emergence. Also in the line-up are works from Edwaard Liang, Justine Peck, Jerome Robbins, Kiyon Ross, and Twyla Tharp; and three world premieres from Jessica Lang, Price Suddarth, and Rena Butler. (Plus a family-matinee offering of Bruce Wells’ Beauty and the Beast, featuring the students of the PNB School; and, of course, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® .)

The PNB Box Office is now open for subscription renewals and new subscriptions; tickets for individual programs go on sale July 23. PNB plans to continue offering a digital subscription as well so audiences across the country and around the world can attend the show: digital season subscriptions will go on sale at a later date. For further information, contact the PNB Box Office by phone at 206.441.2424, or online at As always, everything is subject to change.
