Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Celebrates Moulin Rouge® —The Ballet with Pointe in Time: A Parisian Cabaret on November 10, 2012 at the Westin Convention Center
(Pittsburgh, PA) - In tribute to the Pittsburgh premiere of Moulin Rouge® — The Ballet, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s 28th annual Pointe in Time gala transports guests to the glamour of the famed cabaret on Saturday, November 10, from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m., at the Westin Convention Center Pittsburgh.
From the moment guests enter the Westin, they will be met with the allure and opulence of turn-of-the-century Paris as they are greeted by costumed dancers from Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School’s Graduate Program. In the most anticipated moment of the evening, guests will experience an intimate table-side performance by Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre company dancers while enjoying a seven-course French meal. Later, guests will share the dance floor and the evening with PBT company dancers to the music of Gary Racan and the Studio E Band.
Inspired by the French theme, this year’s live auction features an instant French wine/spirit/champagne cellar, a pendant from Casa D’Oro Jewelers, a New York City weekend and a luxury Paris getaway complete with a tour of The Moulin Rouge itself.
