  1. I was supposed to today, but I got the time wrong...
  2. I went straight to the dancing and really loved the alternate settings to the first two pieces. I would have loved the Liebeslieder, but I found the lighting difficult. I liked what was onstage the least, the Peck again for the lighting, but it was NYCB dancing up a storm, and any chance to see Tiler Peck whip off the central role in Divertimento without breaking a sweat is a joy.
  3. When Kyle Davis was a young dancer at PNB, people often remarked that he resembled Peter Boal.
  4. From the press release: Pacific Northwest Ballet Bids Adieux to Principal Dancers Jerome and Laura Tisserand. Couple to join Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo. SEATTLE, WA – Pacific Northwest Ballet will be bidding an adieux passionnés to principal dancers Jerome Tisserand and Laura Tisserand at the end of the company’s 2020-2021 season: The couple have announced that they will be leaving Seattle this summer, to accept positions with Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo. Laura Tisserand (formerly Gilbreath) trained at PNB School before joining the company as an apprentice in 2003; she was promot
  5. Francia Russell, who staged Theme and Variations for the Mariinsky as part of the same invitation that brought Farrell there, said in a public seminar or post-performance Q&A at Pacific Northwest Ballet that she was diverted to China during one staging trip to work with a company who had learned the ballet(s) from videotapes. Someone wanted the performances to be credible, even if the Chinese government or the company had not gone through the route of getting permissions. Chinese competitive figure skating started when Chinese coaches studied films of Soviet figure skating and tried to r
  6.

  8.

  9. I think they're using "sooner" to meaning within the 14 days, as in the last shot on July 10 would be too soon
  10. You're not considered fully vaccinated until 14 days after your last shot. (The number of weeks vary by vaccine, although two weeks may be true for all vaccines currently administered in the US.) That is why you can't show proof of full vaccination any time sooner than 14 days. Within 14 days means you are still waiting to be fully vaccinated. While the CDC has changed its advice with regard to masking policy for small, outdoor gatherings, they have not changed masking policy for large outdoor gatherings for live events, regardless of the seating scheme.
  11. I've moved the news and responses to the death of Katherine Barber to its own thread here:

  13. From last Friday's links, a small victory* for Lopes Gomes: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-56858493.amp *A smallish amount of money and a one-year extension of her contract.
  14. Rest in peace, Katherine, and my deepest condolences to her family and many friends.
