Sunday, May 5 - 12:30pm
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.
Giselle and Romeo & Juliet:
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. The second part of the performance will feature a scene from one of history’s most enduring love stories, Romeo & Juliet. Tickets for this performance are $100.

The promotional video for Pennsylvania Ballet’s rendition of Giselle was shot on the grounds of West Laurel Hill.
