Eugene Ballet Company- A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Shakespeare’s adored comedy of love, magic, fairies, mixed up lovers, and the mischievous Puck comes alive in Toni Pimble’s delightful choreography set to Felix Mendelssohn’s spirited score.
A new EBC-commissioned ballet, Wandering On, set on the Company by award-winning choreographer Stephanie Martinez opens the program. Chicago-based Martinez, winner of the Joffrey Ballet’s 2014 “Winning Works: Choreographers of Color,” brings her acclaimed talent, stretching the creative minds of our dancers and of you, our audience. Stephanie Martinez’s ballet is supported by The Hult Endowment of The Oregon Community Foundation. The Surrounding Third, a new work choreographed by EBC Company Dancer Suzanne Haag and set to Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings, completes the program.
