In this five-part powerhouse program, we juxtapose all-female and all-male ballets and explore gender stereotypes in an evening of thrilling classical and contemporary ballet.

Michel Fokine’s 'The Dying Swan' epitomizes the ethereal beauty and fragility of a romantic-era ballerina. Darrell Grand Moultrie’s world premiere takes off from 2015’s Instinctual Confidence – a startlingly beautiful men’s trio performed in blue tutus. James Canfield’s 'Drifted in a Deeper Land', a commanding all-male work created during the height of the AIDS epidemic, returns to OBT after almost two decades. Dance Europe called Nicolo Fonte’s 'Left Unsaid' “Fonte at his best …built on an undercurrent of implicit human relationships”, and the New York Times called it “rich in implications.” The dynamic and humorous 'Falling Angels', OBT’s first work from renowned choreographer Jiří Kylián, examines the female dancers’ unrelenting and single-minded drive for perfection – a far cry from fragility.
