Tomorrow’s the big day! NBT will be joined in concert by Pacific Northwest Ballet principals Carla Korbes and Seth Orza and American Ballet Theater’s Herman Cornejo in celebration of NBT’s 40th year and its debut at the Smith Center. Pop musician Matt Goss will be accompanying a new work by Canfield to top off the evening.

“Red Angels,” a work by Ulysses Dove, is on the docket (PNB soloists Lucien Postlewaite and Sarah Ricard Orza will join in for that one), as is the infamous “Serenade” by George Balanchine. On KNPR’s “State of Nevada” program this morning, Canfield and Boal spoke of the Balanchine with a kind of reverence, and they both acknowledging the almost religious feeling that accompanies the number. Pair that with NBT dancers and live music and you’re good to go.

If this tease isn’t quite enough for you, drop by the KNPR website to listen to the full story. The concert is tomorrow, May 5, at 7 p.m. at the Smith Center. Tickets range from $43-$128 and can be purchased online or by calling 702-749-2000.
