Oregon Ballet Theatre invites you to enter a world of love and secrets, passionate American jazz, and heart-stopping dance this fall. This steamy double bill is the result of another exciting collaboration among OBT Resident Choreographer Nicolo Fonte, Concert Pianist Thomas Lauderdale, and Portland's own "little orchestra," Pink Martini. The show begins with a world premiere set to George Gershwin's brilliant "Rhapsody in Blue". Together, Fonte and Lauderdale reconstruct Gershwin's pulsating score to produce an arrangement that promises to enthrall. Next on the bill is the highly anticipated reprise of 2014 audience favorite "Never Stop Falling (in Love)". The 40-minute work, set to your favorite songs performed live on stage by China Forbes and Pink Martini, carves a theatrical arc of seduction, playful flirtation, mystery and heartache. Be part of the passion when this show dances onto the stage of Keller Auditorium.
