A trio of blockbusters includes the return of Crystal Pite’s mesmerizing Emergence and Alejandro Cerrudo’s cinematic Little mortal jump, a work by turns playful, potent, and poignant. The program’s premiere is RAkU, PNB’s first work by Yuri Possokhov. This tale of desire and loyalty captivates with profound character portrayals and intriguing Japanese design layered with digital projection.
