Merrill Ashley, former principal dancer and current ballet mistress with New York City Ballet, and dance scholar/critic Nancy Goldner launch Oregon Ballet Theatre's Dance Talks series on Monday, December 1. This ongoing series will provide context and perspective for all remaining programs in OBT's 2003-04 15th Anniversary Season.
On December 1, Ms. Ashley and Ms. Goldner will discuss choreographer George Balanchine in general and his Nutcracker, in particular. Oregon Ballet Theatre presents the first West Coast production of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker December 11 - 27 at Keller Auditorium.
Ms. Ashley danced every principal role in the Nutcracker to great acclaim and her Balanchine repertory includes more than 50 pieces (many created for her) danced over two decades. As a student in School of American Ballet, Ms. Goldner danced in the 1954 debut of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker.
The event is free but reservations are required: 503-277-0977, ext 213.

Nutcracker were especially fascinating. The 600 seat Winningstad Theatre approx 2/3 full. Very sorry to have missed it.
