Oregon’s premier ballet company is losing its premier ballerina. Alison Roper, at age 40 and after 18 seasons, is about to retire, performing for the last time as a principal dancer in OBT’s Celebrate program. Her final bows, which she’ll take at the April 26 performance, also mark the end of the old guard at OBT under former artistic director Christopher Stowell. Roper almost left with him last year, but new artistic director Kevin Irving convinced her to stay for one more season. In this program, she will perform the company premiere of Nacho Duato’s Cor Perdut, a dynamic pas de deux set to music by Maria del Mar Bonet. The company will also premiere Petal, a vivacious and colorful piece by Helen Pickett, and The Lost Dance, a contemporary piece with an edge that Matjash Mrozewski set on OBT in 2012.
