Peter Pan
Presenter: Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre
Imagination takes flight and time stands still in the mystical world of Jorden Morris’ Peter Pan.

Set to works by English composers, high-flying choreography and aerial acrobatics animate a fantastical realm where fairies flit through the sky, pirates patrol the waters and Peter Pan leads his Lost Boys in endless adventure.
