Oregon Ballet Theatre’s Alison Roper was chosen to be part of Christopher Wheeldon’s Morphoses company for the 2010 winter season.
Here’s the promo e-mail announcing the news…scroll down a bit…there are some quotes. [I pulled the link – apparently the one I had just sends you to Gmail. Let me check and fix this. – Rosie]
And here’s a link to Morphoses’ website, in case you’re interested to see where they’re going (California and Ottawa) and what they’re doing (looks like a slightly varying mix that includes Continuum, Rhapsody Fantaisie, Distant Cries, Boléro (Ratmansky’s), and Softly As I Leave You.)
I sure would love to see this much talked-about pick-up company in Seattle some time. But in the meantime, we can see one of their members at OBT.
