Every year, audiences look forward to the five shows that make up the Oregon Ballet Theatre's season. It was founded in 1989, and since then, the brand has grown to become one of the most popular in the world. The company's success story continues under Kevin Irving's leadership as the ballet company's artistic director. In his time as director, Irving maintained outstanding standards for ballet performances.
La Sylphide will be the main event during the 2022-2023 season.
The two-act ballet performance follows the story of James, the young Scotsman who was about to get married to his soon-to-be-bride Effie. James is sleeping well in his chair by the fireplace on the morning of his wedding when he is awakened by a kiss from a Sylphide, a fanciful spirit of the air. A lovely tale featuring an extraordinary ballet performance culminates with her dancing before him before vanishing up the chimney.
