Description

Experience Jorma Elo – one of the world’s most sought-after choreographers. Boston Ballet’s Resident Choreographer, Elo’s unique perspective and explosive style are combined in these original contemporary works. Danced by Boston Ballet and international companies, Elo’s award-winning choreography met with ovations and critical acclaim on Boston Ballet’s 2010 Spain Tour. “Brake the Eyes,” “Plan to B,” highlights of works from around the world and an Elo World Premiere will combine to create an unforgettable experience. Boston audiences will be swept away with this stunning performance.

Boston Ballet was pivotal in launching Elo’s choreographic career. He has since created works for New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, San Francisco Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater and Finnish National Ballet, among others. His other works for Boston Ballet include _Sharp Side of Dark _(2002), _Carmen _(2006), In On Blue (2008), and _Le Sacre du Printemps _(2009). The 2005 Helsinki International Ballet Competition awarded Elo a choreographic prize and he is the recipient of the Prince Charitable Trust Prize and the Choo-San Goh Choreographic Award in 2006.
