Wooden Dimes

OBT Artistic Director Danielle Rowe’s dramatic one-act ballet Wooden Dimes launches audiences into the tumultuous relationship of 1920’s-era chorus girl Betty Fine and her husband Robert, a passion ultimately ripped apart by resentment and jealousy. Originally produced as a film during the pandemic for San Francisco Ballet’s digital season, Wooden Dimes will be brought to life on stage in this exciting premiere.  
Sharing the program is a romance with a brighter ending, Ben Stevenson’s Three Preludes. A cautious studio flirtation between two dancers transforms into an affair under the influence of the rapturous Rachmaninoff score. Just Above the Surface by New York-based Choreographer Yue Yin completes the program. Described by Culture Vulture as a “goosebump-inducing” work, this ensemble piece “seduces the audience to sway along while hoping that it will never end.”
