The cover of the 2005-6 PNB subscription brochure has a close-up of Peter Boal standing behind Kylee Kitchens at the barre and using his fingers to stretch the length between her waist and ribs, along with the headline, "Introducing Peter Boal." (He will be "introduced" again at the Company's opening gala on 17 September.) Inside the brochure are a very short bio and quotes about Boal, including praise from Town and Country, Louise Nadeau, who had befriended him as a student at SAB, and Jonathan Porretta, who was taught by Boal at SAB. (The back cover is a fantastic picture of Porretta from The Rite of Spring, in which he is mid-air in a leap and parallel to the ground.)

The season is as follows:

Director's Choice (22 Sep-2 Oct):
In the Night (Robbins, company premiere)
Artifact II (Forsythe)
Duo Concertant (Balanchine, company premiere)
Symphony in Three Movements (Balanchine, company premiere)

Past, Present, and Future (3-13 Nov):
Concerto Barocco (Balanchine)
Jardi Tancat (Duato)
World Premiere, Marco Goecke (first ballet for PNB)
Hail to the Conquering Hero (K. Stowell)

Valentine (2-12 Feb):
Ancient Airs and Dances (Tanner, company premiere)
Kiss (Marshall, company premiere)
Red Angels (Dove, company premiere)
Nine Sinatra Songs (Tharp, company premiere)

Points of View (16-26 Mar):
The Bridge (Caniparoli)
World Premiere, Dominique Dumais (second ballet for PNB)
La Valse

The Sleeping Beauty (13-23 Apr):
(Hynd after Petipa)

Jewels (1-11 Jun):
(Balanchine, company Premiere)

plus Nutcracker (K. Stowell) from 25 Nov-28 Dec.

I have a feeling that between the donors, the audience, the press and the general public he will be "introduced" many, many more times before they're finished.

I'm waiting for the next introduction to quote Mark Morris, who, according to a Seattle Times article cited in today's Links, said,

I am really happy that Peter [Boal] is taking over the Ballet [Pacific Northwest Ballet, whose longtime artistic directors Kent Stowell and Francia Russell will retire at the end of the current season]. Peter is the exact right person. Make sure you get that in: 'the exact right person!'
