Now in its 8th year, The Portland Ballet’s beloved production of La Boutique Fantasque has become a tradition for families throughout Portland. This year’s presentation of La Boutique Fantasque will once again be accompanied by the Portland State University Orchestra. The collaboration of the two organizations creates a family holiday outing that is truly unique.
Martha Ullman West wrote in The Oregonian review last year, “…The Portland Ballet’s opening performance of "La Boutique Fantasque" on Friday afternoon at the Newmark Theater, delighting equally the audience of adults and children.” “Live music, of course, makes all the difference, energizing the dancers to perform with an on-the-spot clarity and spontaneity…” And Catherine Thomas noted in her review of the premiere in 2003 "...a family tradition in the making, a break from the 'Nutcracker' mold of holiday ballets ...a simple, fantasy-laced story, an energetic and youthful ensemble and a classic score to keep even grown-ups engaged."
“We are thrilled that this long-sought collaboration has come to fruition, both for our dancers and for the community,” adds TPB Artistic Director Nancy Davis. “This production is not-to-be missed by anyone seeking a first rate holiday experience this year!”
