*Note: This is the playbill for Oregon Ballet Theatre's Petrouchka/Carmen
Oregon Ballet Theatre Presents: Petrouchka/Carmen iPad Edition!
Igor Stravinsky / Nicolo Fonte
Georges Bizet / Christopher Stowell
Kaleidoscopic visuals and world premiere choreography offer striking new perspectives on two classic tales of love and revenge in this new production from Artistic Director Christopher Stowell and choreographer Nicolo Fonte. These audacious adaptations unmoor the lovelorn Petrouchka and the fiery Carmen from their roots as Russian and Spanish folk tales, blurring the lines between fate and fantasy and offering fresh insights into the nature of destiny and desire.
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience these unforgettable characters and epic scores from Stravinsky and Bizet in the hands of the full OBT Orchestra and featuring the Oregon premieres of 10 new company members from around the world.
PETROUCHKA: A Puppet Show (But Not For Children)
Long before Disney made Pinocchio a real boy, before Woody met Buzz Lightyear, before the Scarecrow and the Tin Man wanted a brain and a heart, before the Velveteen Rabbit learned to hop . . . there was Igor Stravinsky’s Petrouchka, a haunting ballet about a puppet who becomes real. And unlike the others, it’s hardly a family-friendly bedtime story.
CARMEN: A Rebellious Bird That Nobody Can Tame
A knife-wielding heroine, a controversial ending, and a theatre full of horrified aristocrats. . . . Welcome to opening night of Carmen, 1875.
