Pink Martini provides a little party music for OBT 25, Oregon Ballet Theatre's dynamic celebration of their 25th anniversary. With a program that can only be described as an embarrassment of riches, OBT will perform George Balanchine's thrillingly athletic Agon as well as excerpts from three choreographers who have profoundly influenced the company: Christopher Stowell (artistic director 2003-2012), Trey McIntyre (resident choreographer, 1997-1999) and James Canfield (founding artistic director). Topping off this thrilling collection of pieces is a collaboration between the iconic Portland ensemble Pink Martini and choreographer Nicolo Fonte. Revealing new facets of both groups, the work will feature the "little orchestra" playing their iconic songs -- and brand new material -- live on stage with the dancers. Learn More
