It's the end of an era. Oregon Ballet Theatre's Principal Dancer Alison Roper is coming to the end of an 18-year onstage career. She's transitioning into a new role, fundraising for OBT.

Two of our pals, Oregon Art Beat's Katrina Sarson, and Arts & Life Producer John Rosman have been talking with Roper about the transition. Katrina dropped in to share the interview, and John's been working on a cool video. Watch it below!

Here is information about the OBT performance celebrating Alison Roper.

Here are some of the photos from the session:
