Amore Italiano

October 10–17, 2015 | Keller Auditorium

Napoli Act III (OBT Premiere)

August Bournonville / Holger Simon Paulli

Sub Rosa (World Premiere)

James Kudelka / Carlo Gesualdo

With a special appearance by Portland violinist Aaron Meyer and his 6-piece band.

Oregon Ballet Theatre begins its 26th season with a high-spirited double bill that revels in the culture and music of Italy. Audience favorite James Kudelka (Almost Mozart) returns to Portland to choreograph a new work based on the beautiful music of late Italian Renaissance composer Carlo Gesualdo. Next we evoke the exuberance of Southern Italy with August Bournonville’s Napoli. Known for its lightening quick footwork, breathtaking leaps, and fiery Tarantella, Napoli is a joyful, sunny spectacle you don’t want to miss! And, since we like to include a dash of local color in everything we do, Portland violinist Aaron Meyer and his six-piece band will open the evening with selections of Italian classics.

$15 Student Rush Tickets Available!

Students with current valid id may purchase tickets at the Keller box office for just $15. Tickets will be issued for best available seats beginning at 5:30 pm prior to that evening’s performance.
