Dance United will be performed on 9 June, 7:30pm, at the Keller Auditorium in Portland. Here is the program and guest artist info from the OBT website, on which ticket info is posted:

Guest artists include Jeanette Delgado and Renato Penteado (Miami City Ballet), Victoria Jaiani and Temur Suluashvili (The Joffrey Ballet), Maia Makhateli and Tamás Nagy (Dutch National Ballet), Adrian Danchig-Waring (New York City Ballet) and Garen Scribner and Dana Genshaft (San Francisco Ballet).

Pas de deux to be performed by the visiting guest artists include Christopher Wheeldon's Ghosts (San Francisco Ballet) and excerpts from George Balanchine's Stars and Stripes (Miami City Ballet) with additional repertoire to be determined. Oregon Ballet Theatre will perform a sneak preview of both the white and black swan pas de deux from next season's Swan Lake and a trio of short Kurt Weill inspired pieces: Christopher Wheeldon's There Where She Loved, Kent Stowell's Jenny and a world premiere work by Christopher Stowell set to Kurt Weill's tango-infused Youkali. Rounding out the program will be Balanchine's Who Cares?

For those who saw the Dutch National Ballet "Don Quixote", Maia Makhateli danced Amor in the Act II Dream Scene.

I saw OBT in a recent program, and they were looking great -- this should be a fun evening in the theater.
