On PNB Principal Dancer Olivier Wevers' company, Whim W'him, website, there is a fascinating post about Michael Mazzola's collaboration with choreographers Wevers and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa to create the lighting design. Mazzola is the Lighting Director for Oregon Ballet Theatre.

If "Cylindrical Shadows" is, indeed, the ballet by Ochoa that PNB will perform, it will be interesting to see how the superb lighting design will change from the 400+-seat Intiman Theater to the 2000+ seat, multi-level McCaw Hall. Mazzola's lighting design for many OBT productions in both the (large) Keller Auditorium and (more intimate) Newmark Theatre is as good as it gets.
