    You've never seen Ichabod Crane like this!

    Later this week, Nell Shipman, Portland Ballet's new associate artistic director, will unveil her originally choreographed--highly anticipated--production of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". "Shipman conceived the visual aspects of the story, choreographed the ballet and designed the costumes the dancers will wear. She also designed the set and created the overall aura of the show. She wants the ballet to feel more like a ghost story than a fairy tale." ~ Quote: The Portland Press Herald
