Ballet to produce one show, present another.

Byline: Bob Keefer The Register-Guard


Eugene dance fans should be plenty happy this fall, with performances by both local and out of town companies lined up.

First up, Eugene Ballet is turning presenter, hosting Buenos Aires dance company Estampas Portenas in an evening dubbed Tango Fire! on Oct. 19 at the Hult Center. Making its first North American tour, the group was founded in 1996 by choreographer Carolina Soler.

The Eugene Ballet itself will perform "Carmina Burana," choreographed by Toni Pimble to the 1937 Carl Orff musical setting of a cycle of medieval poems. The production, at the Hult on Nov. 10-12, also includes singers from the Eugene Concert Choir and musicians from the Oregon Mozart Players.

The ballet brings back its traditional "Nutcracker" to the Hult on Dec. 21-24.

In what's described as a "fusion of dance and theater," the Hult is bringing the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company for "Another Evening: I Bow Down" on Oct. 8.

World dance aficionados will want to check out Obo Addy's Okropong, a program of music and dance of Ghana, on Oct. 6 at Beall Hall on campus.
