When we first presented Helen Pickett’s Petal, you could feel the shivers of pleasure cascade through the audience – the sheer pleasure of discovery. You’ve waited long enough, and now Petal is back. Also in this program we bring, for the very first time, a work by Spanish choreographer Nacho Duato, Jardí Tancat. Jardí was Duato’s very first ballet and the work that catapulted him to fame. Additionally, and in a coup for OBT, Duato is allowing for the first time ever, his stunning pas de deux, El Naranjo to be staged. Performances April 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 7:30 pm; April 15, 16, 2:00 pm at the Newmark Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, Portland. For details and tickets, visit the OBT website.
