Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Cancels February’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’

To Our PBT Family:
Since the doors to the Benedum Center opened for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s Season Premiere in October and The Nutcracker in December, we have been thrilled to welcome enthusiastic live audiences back to the theater. Thank you for your support!

One ballet that will not make its successful return to theaters is Alice in Wonderland, Feb 11 – Feb 13, 2022.
Alice is a U.K. production that involves cross-Atlantic travel and therefore presents risks that PBT is not prepared to take on with so much uncertainty and ever-changing circumstances surrounding international travel. With a short run of only four performances, rescheduling the production is unfortunately not a feasible option.

If you have already purchased tickets to Alice in Wonderland, please visit pbt.org/Alice and complete the online form to resolve your tickets. You can also email inquiry@pittsburghballet.org or call 412-454-9107.

Despite this unfortunate cancellation, we very much look forward to the remaining shows in our season and hope that you will return to the theater to see what promises to be two spectacular productions: Here + Now and Swan Lake with the PBT Orchestra. Learn more about these productions at pbt.org.
