Portland Center Stage has selected four exciting new plays drawn from a national search for the 2013 JAW: A Playwrights Festival. “The selections this year are a unique reflection of the times we live in,” says Festival Director Rose Riordan, “It’s exciting to see so many smart Portlanders lining up to see a play reading in July. It might be the air conditioning, but I don’t think so.”

Portland Opera’s 48th Season begins once again on a spectacular note with a jam-packed evening the audience won’t soon forget. Last season, BIG NIGHT, the Company’s first ever concert of opera’s greatest hits and the free simulcast outdoors exceeded all expectations. A hit with both the audience inside Keller Auditorium and the hundreds sitting out watching the concert simulcast on huge screen hung on the front of the building; it was a big night in many ways. The season’s concert will again feature all that is big and beloved in opera—the hits, the voices, the choruses, the orchestra.
From 1995-2008, Oregon Ballet Theatre presented OBT Exposed in the South Park Blocks of downtown Portland.

After a hiatus in 2009 and 2010, OBT Exposed returned in July 2011, moving toDirector Park in the heart of downtown Portland.
