Angel Corella, artistic director of Pennsylvania Ballet, explains what you will see with this show.

“Well, with this show, “Strength and Longing”, we sort of put together a show that has that strength especially with the male dancing. It’s very unusual to see, usually people recognize ballet with women and actually in this program we’re going to see the strength of the men and the longing of the women. I think that’s the beauty of this program.”

Corella discusses the goal of the Pennsylvania Ballet.
