Pacific Northwest Ballet:
An Insider's Personal View on the Company's Background and History

By Dina McDermott
(with contributions by Azlan Ezaddin)

Seattle is tucked in the far Northwest corner of the United States, surrounded by breathtaking mountains and chilly Puget Sound, a city of gray mists and long, drizzly winter days. First impressions are of local lifestyles focused primarily on rugged, outdoor activities: many enjoy kayaking, skiing, and hiking. However, the Seattle institution visible on the international cultural scene is one of a wholly, different bent, but of an equally athletic nature. That institution is Pacific Northwest Ballet, directed by Francia Russell and Kent Stowell.

I am a very big fan of Julie Tobiason. I read in the Ballet forum she'll be retiring in London. Does anyone know what she'll be dancing?

Oh Ben! You're in for a disappointment, as we are. Julie broke her foot in the Seattle area run-through of the London Mixed Bill and has not come with the Company.

There is some commentary on this in the Monday Diary and the Mixed Bill topic.

This is very disappointing news about Miss Tobiason. I will read the reports in the other discussion string about her replacement.
