Join us for a rare choreographic collaboration, as Eugene Ballet Company teams up with OBF in three perspectives on creation. Brilliant pianist Gabriela Montero provides the music, with J.S. Bach’s French Suite No. 2 adaptations of two great creation-themed ballets. Jean-Féry Rebel’s extraordinary Les élémens opens with one of the most startling moments in Baroque music, his initial depiction of chaos, and follows with ingenious tone painting; fresh from a transformative encounter with jazz in Harlem, Darius Milhaud animated his La création du monde with swinging rhythms and colored it with bluesy harmonies.
