Pacific Northwest Ballet at Guggenheim Works & Process with excerpts from the new Gisellehttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/ballet/getting-the-wilis-pacific-northwest-ballet-at-the-guggenheim/1020/
Carla Korbes and Seth Orza portrayed the lead couple. It was gratifying to see these two ex-NYCB dancers blossoming into the potential they demonstrated in NY a few years ago. Under Boal’s direction, even in this less formal setting, they gave fully detailed renditions of the choreography, with Korbes showing uncommon restraint, delicacy, and pacing. Carrie Imler and James Moore as well delivered dimensional performances with technical flair. One can only hope that the company brings its Giselle, ou les Wilis, which premieres in June in Seattle, to the East Coast, for we too rarely have the chance to see these accomplished dancers.
