London is welcoming back The Boston Ballet from the 3rd-7th of July for the first time in 30 years. The dance company, coming all the way from America will present two mesmerising programs at the historic Coliseum.
Program A contains innovative dance work which will highlight the companies various range of abilities. Arrangements include Vaslay Nijinsky’s Afternoon of a Faun, George Balanchine’s Serendade and Symphony in Three Movements as well as a piece called Plan to B by their own choreographer, Jorma Elo.
Program B will bring to light the company’s contemporary skills through three diverse pieces. The program features Christopher Wheeldon’s Polyphonia, William Forsythe’s The Second Detail and Jiri Kylian’s Bella Figura. Polyphonia, a complex piece allows the dancers to showcase their raw talent in a stripped down, pure piece of ballet. The Second Detail is a strong piece full of energy which never fails to overcome an audience. Boston Ballet is the first American company to perform Bella Figura, which is said to be an emotional master piece that leaves viewers with a long lasting impression. All three pieces are cutting edge pieces of work – definitely worth a watch.
Ticket prices range from £10 to £75 and are available here. Located in Covent Garden the shows take place at 7.30pm each evening with an extra showing on Saturday 7th at 2.30pm.
