obt: alison roper joins wheeldon for winter 2010 season

By Rosie Gaynor

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.
