PNB heads to New York

Romeo et Juliette,” Jean-Christophe Maillot’s passionate retelling of Shakespeare’s tale, continues at Pacific Northwest Ballet for another week, but that’s not the only news out of PNB these days. The company’s headed to New York — it’s PNB’s first all-company tour there since 1996 — for three more performances of “Romeo et Juliette” and an evening of Balanchine repertory, all at New York City Center, Feb. 13-16. In anticipation, a profile of PNB principal dancer Carla Korbes (who’ll be one of two Juliettes on the tour) appeared in the New York Times yesterday; it’s a homecoming of sorts for Korbes, who studied at the School of American Ballet and danced for five years with New York City Ballet.

In other PNB news: Artistic director Peter Boal announced, from the stage of McCaw Hall after the final curtain of “Romeo et Juliette” on Friday, the well-deserved promotion of James Moore to principal dancer. Here he is as Romeo, with Kaori Nakamura. (Photo by Angela Sterling)
