SELECTED PERFORMANCE PIECES
Le Grand Pas de Trois des Odalisques
Three young ladies of ideal beauty are entertainment for a harem, in this showcase of talent for three female soloists, from Act 3 of Marius Petipa’s full-length ballet, Le Corsaire.
Spanish choreographer, Nacho Duato, created this seamless yet highly technical partnership of one female and two male dancers, during his nature inspired period of the 1990’s.
The piece was originally choreographed as part of the opera, Faust, by the most influential choreographer of the 20th Century, George Balanchine, and is a joyful and flowing revelry of dance.
Clair de Lune
Oregon Ballet Theatre’s Resident Choreographer, Nicolo Fonte, was inspired by the theme, nature vs. nurture, when he set this piece to Claude Debussy’s familiar tune.
All proceeds go toward the NCPRD scholarship program and OBT2. For more information call (503) 653-8100.
