Dreamy and Unforgettable
Choreographed by OBT’s former artistic director Christopher Stowell, after Marius Petipa’s original 1890 choreography, which debuted at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. Last seen in Portland in 2010, this enchanting, full-length work is one of the world’s most popular storied ballets. — Set to Tchaikovsky’s opulent score, it features a cast of fantastical characters, spectacular sets, and legendary music. Now a new generation of stars and stars-in-the-making bring you a brilliant “happily ever after” with the grandest of dancing.
“The most beloved of the 19th-century ballets. No other dance classic has a score so endlessly fragrant and varied. No other work has so rich an idea of what ballet theater can be.” – The New York Times
Choreography by Christopher Stowell (after Marius Petipa)
Music by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
