“Nothing less than brilliant” (The Boston Globe), Boston Ballet returns to Jacob’s Pillow for the first time in over a decade, performing work by choreographic and visual artist William Forsythe, currently in a five-year artistic partnership with the Company, classics by Russian choreographer Leonid Yakobson, and resident choreographer Jorma Elo’s Bach Cello Suites.
Under the artistic directorship of Mikko Nissinen since 2001, Boston Ballet is recognized worldwide for repertoire that is “one of the most eclectic in the country” (The New York Times). As New England’s first professional ballet company with a Pillow history dating to the company’s infancy in 1962, Boston Ballet has mesmerized audiences for over five decades, presenting classical evening-length ballets as well as innovative contemporary works.
