Pretty Pretty PNB

Pacific Northwest Ballet is performing in NYC this week, and I could. not. be. happier. Though I’ve loved this company (especially the amazingly amazing Carla Körbes) for ages, it’s so rare that I actually get a chance to see them dance live.

But not this week. This week I get to see them twice.

The company’s Wednesday night performance of three Balanchine classics—Concerto Barocco, Apollo and Agon—was nothing short of sublime (and you don’t have to take my word for it). Tonight, I get to see the dancers in a totally different mode, in Jean-Christophe Maillot’s cinematic Roméo et Juliette.

Not a PNB fan (yet)? These gorgeous photos from their Wednesday night show should make a convert out of you. Already a PNB die-hard? Well, you’re welcome/happy Friday.

Enjoy!
