The best way to honor a costumier is with a masquerade party, which is how Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre celebrated Janet Campbell’s 40 years of creativity with the ballet, which has been lighting up Pittsburgh stages for about 44 years.
“Janet represents what the PBT is made of — consistency and creativity,” said executive director Harris Ferris (with Janet).
The party was held at Perle on Market Square last Tuesday evening. Carolyn Byham (with Bill) thanked PBT and Ms. Campbell for their years of excellence. Among those who came to pay tribute were the founder and first artistic director of PBT, Nicolas Petrov, former artistic director Patricia Wilde and current artist director Terrence Orr. Others enjoying the evening of great masks and a good buffet were trustees Jennifer and Michael LaRocco, Tim McVay and David Bush, Christine and Mark Popovich, Winthrop Watson, Markus and Donna Weber and Judy Linaberg.
