Hailing from Vancouver, Ballet BC pushes the boundaries of classical ballet with a cutting-edge, contemporary sensibility. Praised as “physically rigorous, dramatically solid, and truly contemporary” (Dance Magazine), Ballet BC celebrates ten years under the leadership of Artistic Director and former company member Emily Molnar, whose vision has guided the company into an era of innovation and collaboration.

The evening begins with an exclusive talk by Norton Owen, Jacob Pillow's Preservation Director, in Blake’s Barn at 5:15 pmAfterwards, bring your own picnic supper - or buy one on site - and our OLLI chefs will provide delectable desserts and iced tea under our OLLI tent.

The evening ends with an extraordinary performance by Ballet BC at 8pm.  OLLI has reserved excellent seats for the performance, but we must have your order in by June 1st to ensure your seat.
