SEATTLE, WA – Pacific Northwest Ballet wraps up its acclaimed 2010-2011 season with the annual Season Encore Performance, a crowd-pleasing reprise of some of PNB’s greatest hits.  An evening of thrilling selections and inspired performances, the program will feature PNB’s entire Company, along with the mighty PNB Orchestra under the baton of Acting Music Director/Conductor Allan Dameron.  The evening also celebrates the extraordinary careers of some of our departing dancers with selections ranging from Agon to Red Angels, among others, and will also contain a few surprises and special guests.  The Season Encore Performance will be presented one night only, Sunday, June 12 at 6:30 pm at McCaw Hall, 321 Mercer Street.  Tickets may be purchased exclusively through the PNB Box Office (206.441.2424, online at pnb.org, or in person at 301 Mercer Street at Seattle Center.)

In addition to the previously announced departures of principal dancers Ariana Lallone and Jeffrey Stanton as well as corps de ballet dancer Stacy Lowenberg, the Season Encore Performance will be the audience’s chance to offer a fond farewell to company members including principal dancers Stanko Milov and Olivier Wevers, soloist Chalnessa Eames and corps de ballet dancers Barry Kerollis and Josh Spell.

“The Season Encore Performance will be, without a doubt, one of the most memorable performances of the year; a bittersweet opportunity to celebrate a remarkable season while bidding a heartfelt bon voyage to these departing dancers,” said Artistic Director Peter Boal. “PNB and our audiences have been graced by brilliant performances from these company members, in an extraordinary range of roles. They have executed classical, contemporary and character roles all with equal ease. We’ve also witnessed the birth of four innovative choreographers through creations by Barry, Olivier, Stacy and Stanko for our School and Company dancers over the years. They will each be missed as members of our company but we are most grateful for their myriad contributions.”
