Mark your calendars and book a room at our Lenox MA bed and breakfast, for it’s almost time for Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival Opening Gala. The big event takes place Saturday, June 19, 2010, at 6pm in the Ted Shawn Theatre.

When will you attend Jacob's Pillow?

This is no mere spectator event – it’s a evening of fantastic entertainment, a sumptuous dinner, auctions, and dancing (yes, guests may dance, too). Many talented performers are scheduled to take the stage, including: ballet star Nina Ananiashvili, who will dance The Dying Swan; a “whirlwind solo” by Kyle Abraham; and a duet by Camille A. Brown. You’ll watch the world premiere of Karole Armitage’s new work, and a new film from the Jacob’s Pillow Archives. After feasting and bidding at the live and silent auctions (to support Jacob’s Pillow), you’ll rub elbows with the performers while dancing to live music on the Great Lawn. Expect to return late to our Berkshires bed and breakfast.

This is a truly special event, and we hope you can attend it. If not, there will be other opportunities to enjoy great programming during the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, which runs through August, 2010.
