Treat your sweetheart to an exceptional dance experience in February! Step away from winter’s cold to the warm, lush green forests of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Shakespeare’s adored comedy of love—with magic, fairies, mixed up lovers, and the mischievous Puck—comes alive in Toni Pimble’s delightful choreography set to Felix Mendelssohn’s spirited score. Orchestra Next joins us for both Eugene performances.

Our winter program also features Wandering On, a new EBC-commissioned ballet set on the Company by award-winning choreographer Stephanie Martinez Wandering On explores the concept of Samsara in six parts. Chicago-based Martinez, winner of the Joffrey Ballet’s 2014 “Winning Works: Choreographers of Color,” describes her new work as “the constant cycle of life. A true transition between life and moving on.” Stephanie Martinez’s ballet is supported by The Hult Endowment of The Oregon Community Foundation.

Plus, EBC Dancer Suzanne Haag premieres her new work The Surrounding Third, set to Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings.
