(Pittsburgh, PA) – Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre presents A Streetcar Named Desire, a ballet by John Neumeier, March 9-11, 2012 at the Benedum Center. Making its Pittsburgh Premiere, and only the second time being performed in the United States, is the raw emotion of Tennessee Williams’ American classic A Streetcar Named Desire. A jarring portrayal of clashing cultures, the ballet takes audiences inside the tormented mind of aging southern belle Blanch Du Bois. Alternating between past and present, the production echoes her unraveling sense of reality. Neumeier’s searing choreography unites classical ballet and physical dance theater to evoke a powerful experience for ballet goers.

Streetcar, originally created for Stuttgart Ballet, with Richard Cragun and Marcia Haydee in the roles of Stanley Kowalski and Blanch DuBois, has dominated stages in Europe since its premiere in 1983. This is the first time the ballet is being performed by and set on an American company.
