I haven't seen anything in the media, so I just called PNB's offices to get the news. Here are the promotions announced last night:

Maria Chapman to principal
Karel Cruz to principal
Lindsi Dec to soloist

There were several apprentice to corps promotions but I did not take the time to ask for that list.

[later edit.....I now see that sandik posted the full promotion list as an add-on to another topic. I will leave this post here in case there are others like me who don't connect that topic title with the promotions news.]

Oh! That must be such a wonderful transition for Karel and Lindsi! They both richly deserve it.

It's not a promotion per se, but it is in the employment line -- Peter Boal mentioned at one of the post-show Q&A last week that he's signed a 5 year renewal on his contract.
