Napoli Act III (OBT Premiere)
August Bournonville/ Holger Simon Paulli
Sub Rosa (World Premiere)
James Kudelka / Carlo Gesualdo
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.
