An extraordinary conversation will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 7-8 p.m. in the Microsoft Auditorium, Central Library, when Pacific Northwest Ballet Artistic Director Peter Boal engages in a lively discussion with director and choreographer, Mark Morris. Co-sponsored by Seattle Theatre Group, this event requires no tickets or reservations, but seating is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis. Limited parking in the Central Library Garage will be available for a $5 special event rate from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

“A Conversation with Mark Morris and Peter Boal” promises to be an entertaining and enjoyable evening. Rarely has the public had the chance to hear company directors speak about their work. This conversation will offer the synergy of ideas from two internationally recognized leaders in dance.

Sure to be part of the conversation is Seattle Theatre Group’s upcoming presentation of the Mark Morris Dance Group  at the Paramount Theatre May 1-3 in Mozart Dances. This much acclaimed work has been choreographed by Mark Morris to three compositions of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. During the performances the music will be performed live by the Seattle Symphony.
