Annenberg Center

2018–2019 Season

In countless Philadelphia debuts and exciting world, U.S. and local premieres, our 18/19 season simply shines.

Our partner, NextMove Dance, returns to the Annenberg Center for a co-presented series of 11 stunning dance companies, including four performing in Philadelphia for the first time. We continue our commitment to innovative, critically acclaimed theatre productions and showcase a diverse array of celebrated jazz, classical and world music artists. Early music graces our stage for the first time, and we take site-specific performances to Rittenhouse Square and even a local pub.

In our new series The Philadelphians, we explore the populations that came to and forever changed our city through period performance juxtaposed with new interpretations that look back on our history. We continue our Artist-in-Residence program with the renowned Dance Theatre of Harlem, featuring a world premiere by Philadelphia native Robert Garland. The Crossing, our local Grammy® Award-winning chamber choir, makes its Annenberg Center debut in a unique holiday concert. And, we shine a spotlight on jazz pianists with intimate shows by three vibrant, young artists.

Our 18/19 season reflects on current topics of immigration, race and gender, using the performing arts to share narratives, explore innovative ideas and uncover what connects us all. It’s truly a season showcasing the power of the arts to transform lives.
