Recently, Oregon Ballet Theatre (OBT) announced its 2015|16 season.

Dancing into the new season, Artistic Director Kevin Irving says OBT's theme this year “is that the future embraces the past.”

Beginning their dance into the future, OBT presents Amore Italiano, a passionate production choreographed by James Kedelka. 

Following this is the premier of Act III of Napoli.  For this production, the entire company dances on the stage and welcomes members from The School of Oregon Ballet Theatre to join them in the production’s vivacious Tarantella. 

For winter, OBT presents Romeo & Juliet, which makes a triumphant return to OBT’s repertory after a fifteen-year respite with choreography by former OBT Artistic Director James Canfield. This marks the first full-length production of one of Canfield's ballets since he left the company in 2003. 

To close, OBT ends their 2015|16 season with Nicolo Fonte’s Beautiful Decay. Beautiful Decay is a moving production that illustrates the complicated relationship between youth and fragility.  This production also features guest stars and Portland favorites, Susan Banyas and Gregg Bielemeier, who Natasha Kautsky describes as “embodying Fonte’s theme that we carry all our ages inside ourselves at all times.”
