Oregon Ballet Theatre OBT 25 program for iPad!
Note: This is the program for the performance.
October 11–18, 2014
Returning to the repertory for the first time in over a decade is George Balanchine’s masterwork, AGON, a pivotal work in the development of modernism in the 20th century and one of the most thrilling athletic contests you will ever see. The program includes excerpts from the three choreographers that most shaped OBT over these past 25 years: Christopher Stowell, Artistic Director from 2003 to 2012, Trey McIntyre, Resident Choreographer from 1997 to 1999, and Founding Artistic Director James Canfield, whose work returns to OBT for the first time since 2003. Topping off this embarrassment of riches is a collaboration between the iconic Portland music ensemble Pink Martini and choreographer Nicolo Fonte in celebration of our 25th Anniversary Season. Inspired by Fonte’s eagerness to create an unforgettable experience for the audience that will reveal new facets of both groups and the performers in them, NEVER STOP FALLING (IN LOVE) will feature the "little orchestra" playing their iconic songs, as well as some brand new material, live on stage with the dancers!
