OBT LIVE | June 5 – 12, 2021

Oregon Ballet Theatre’s reimagined season OBT MOVES concludes on a jubilant note with an outdoor, and in-person performance – OBT LIVE!

More than a year has passed since any of us experienced the thrill of live performance – a thrill we’ve all been missing. In honor of OBT’s return to an actual stage and in a special partnership with Portland Opera and OMSI, we are delighted to present two world premieres thematically inspired by the sheer joy we feel in reconnecting with you. The program features an OBT first-time commission from the powerful and dynamic Canadian-New York based choreographer Jennifer Archibald paired with new work from audience favorite and OBT Resident Choreographer, Nicolo Fonte. Part performance, part celebration, part reunion, we can’t wait to share it all in-person at OBT LIVE.
