Oregon Ballet Theatre to kickoff 25th season
Portland-based Oregon Ballet Theatre will celebrate a quarter century of presenting dance to the West Coast as it kicks off its 2014-15 season in October.
The commemorative program OBT 25 will open the season on October 11-18 at the Keller Auditorium. For the first time in over a decade, George Balanchine’s 1957 work Agon will grace the OBT stage. In a tribute to three choreographers who have shaped OBT to date, the program will also include Love x 3, featuring pas de deux by Trey McIntyre, Christopher Stowell and Founding Artistic Director James Canfield. The program will conclude with a world premiere by Nicolo Fonte set to live music.
The 25th anniversary season will also present a world premiere by Darrell Grand-Moultrie, the company’s first
full-length Cinderella, and the launch of OBT II in the
spring of 2015.
