"New works" and "fabulous dancers," Eduardo Vilaro once said, are the makings of "a great cocktail." But what Vilaro serves up is not a drink -- but great dance. As artistic director of Ballet Hispanico, Vilaro leads one of the world's most storied and respected Latino dance organizations. More than three million people on three continents have been enraptured by this sensational company with its rich repertory of more than 100 works by today's leading choreographers. Now Ballet Hispanico brings its trademark fusion of classical, Latin and contemporary dance to Portland's Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
Watch a trailer for Dralion at the Cirque du Soleil website.
Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil_, _Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.
In Dralion_, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of _Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.
