Personal connections inform Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre artistic director Terrence S. Orr’s choice of works on the company’s Mixed Repertory #2 program, with four performances March 10-13 at the Byham Theater.
Orr says he chose Canadian choreographer James Kudelka’s “The Man in Black” partly because it is unique, but mostly because he is a fan of Kudelka. “I have known him for over 30 years and he is a very creative choreographer whose work takes off on different tangents,” says Orr.
