Discovery: 2017-2018 Season

Your passport is ready! Join us as we embark on a grand world tour.

One of the world’s foremost globetrekkers, Peer Gynt, is the inspiration for our 2017–2018 Season of Discovery. My new full-length ballet—based on Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen’s play, with scenery designed by multidisciplinary artist Jessey Zepeda and Japanese visual artist Satoko Motouji—will take us all on an unforgettable adventure.

The entire family can journey with us to the jungles of India for the return of Mowgli—The Jungle Book Ballet, or escape to a winter wonderland in St. Petersburg at The Nutcracker.

If something a bit more metropolitan is your flare, then you’re certain to come away dancing when Portland’s own Pink Martini provides its signature musical style to new choreography from Suzanne Haag and Sarah Ebert. This winter performance includes San Francisco based choreographer Val Caniparoli’s Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino set to Vivaldi’s music of Venice.

Known internationally for presenting works of exceptional creativity and physical beauty, MOMIX brings the landscape of the American Southwest to life in their revival production of Opus Cactus, a special evening we’re pleased to co-present with Hult Presents.

Eugene Ballet would not be the company it is without our national and international dancers who work, play and dream dance, and delight us all with their beauty, grace, strength and agility. Let them take you on a trip this season to experience themes, styles and dance from all over the globe, enjoying it all right here in Eugene.

Don’t forget to send us a postcard!

Artistic Director
