Elo Experience is a full-evening tribute to Jorma Elo, Boston Ballet’s Resident Choreographer since 2005. The Finnish-born choreographer’s combination of strong classical and contemporary training has provided him with a unique perspective and voice. The program will include his 2007 work, Brake the Eyes, which has been performed by Boston Ballet at engagements including The Spoleto Festival in South Carolina, Ballet Across America in Washington, D.C., Fall for Dance in New York City, and most recently at The National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Canada. It was described by The Boston Globe as having a fluid aesthetic, “with phrases enlivened by quirky connections and stunningly inventive partnering.” Elo Experience will also feature Plan to B, Elo’s 2004 commission for Boston Ballet called by DANCE Magazine “a spectacle of ricochet lighting and solo virtuosity.” Finally, a composition of Elo’s exisiting works for Boston Ballet and companies around the world will complete the program.
Boston Ballet presents George Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a lucid and inventive telling of Shakespeare’s play. A Midsummer Night’s Dream was Balanchine’s first original, full-length ballet. Called by critic Clive Barnes, “a fantasy spectacle of love,” this work is a masterful combination of storytelling and choreography danced to the exquisite sounds of Mendelssohn. The ballet tells a story of love, illusion and adventures of two pairs of mortal lovers and the kind and queen of the fairies. A Midsummer Night’s Dream was choreographed for New York City Ballet and premiered in 1962. The production includes a large cast complete with 25 students from Boston Ballet School and sets and costumes designed by Tony Award-winner Martin Pakledinaz. The last time A Midsummer Night’s Dream was danced by Boston Ballet it was called, “a winner, a gorgeous, spirited production given strong performances throughout the ranks, including the excellent orchestra led by Jonathan McPhee” by The Boston Globe.
Balanchine/Robbins – a set of four works by master choreographers George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, considered two of the greatest influencers of American dance. Robbins has been called “the moon to George Balanchine’s sun” by The New York Times.
