West Laurel Hill is presenting two one-of-a-kind featured excerpts with Pennsylvania Ballet this May in celebration of the cemetery’s 150th anniversary. The presentations will be followed by a meet and greet opportunity with the dancers of each play as well as the artistic director and a reception with drinks and light fare. Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit The Friends of Laurel Hill Cemetery.
There are many great stories of heartbreak and redemption, but none are quite as beautiful as Giselle. Giselle is one of the ballet’s oldest and most continually-performed hauntingly romantic works and will feature an exclusive scene from the play. *Fun fact: the first American ballerina to perform as Giselle is buried in our sister cemetery, Laurel Hill.
Romeo & Juliet:
This performance will feature a scene from one of history’s most enduring love stories, Romeo & Juliet.
Tickets for this event are $100.
