Ariana

A simple melding of two photos. The building is the McCaw Hall in Seattle, home to Seattle Opera and Pacific Northwest Ballet. The ballerina is Ariana Lallone, who recently retired as principal dancer after 24 years with PNB. A brilliant dancer, she took over the stage whenever she appeared – I couldn’t take my eyes off her.

The McCaw Hall photo is my own and I found Ariana’s picture on the internet. I like the way her X-shaped pose breaks through the vertical lines of the building, while her red tutu stands out against its blue-steel colour. Both are lean, leggy, and elegant.
