It's heartbreaking when a great ballerina retires and only a lucky few thousand people can see her final performance. Not so, with Pacific Northwest Ballet principal Carla Körbes. Her final performance with PNB will be live-streamed through PNB.org/Live on Sunday, June 7 at 6:30pm PST.
The evening is PNB's Season Encore Performance and will feature George Balanchine's Serenade along with selections from his ballet Jewels. It will also feature the local premiere of a piece by Ballet BC dancer and former PNB corps member Andrew Bartee, as well as the retirements of corps de ballet dancer Brittany Reid and soloist Kiyon Gaines.
Körbes is scheduled to perform in Serenade, Diamonds and the premiere of Jessica Lang's The Calling. Tickets to attend the live performance are available through the PNB box office.
