They’ve been around for 50 years now but it’s been 30 years since Boston Ballet last performed in London. In July 2013 the company will put right these sad years of neglect by opening their 50th anniversary season with six performances at London’s Coliseum.
Among other pieces they’re bringing with them short works by the incomparable Balanchine, the ubiquitous Christopher Wheeldon, a dash of resident choreographer Jorma Elo and a rare chance in the UK to see Jiří Kylián’s skin-tight Bella Figura.
The performances are split into two programmes and tickets can be bought from eno.org
Programme A – 3, 4, 6 & 7 July
Serenade (Balanchine), Afternoon of a Faun (Nijinsky), Plan to B (Elo), Symphony in Three Movements (Balanchine)
Programme B – 5 & 6 July
Bella Figura (Kylián), Polyphonia (Wheeldon), The Second Detail (Forsythe)
