Blake Works III (The Barre Project)

William Forsythe returns to Boston with the dynamic and masterful ballet, Blake Works III (The Barre Project). This work pushes our artform into new territory yet again. The masterpiece was created for Boston Ballet in 2022 and is set to the propulsive and beautifully structured music of composer James Blake. An absolute powerhouse of dance, it is riveting to watch Boston Ballet dancers master Forsythe’s challenging and innovative technique.

“…one of the most visionary and influential choreographers on the planet.”

– Karen Campbell, The Boston Globe (2019)

Bella Figura

A beloved favorite, Jiří Kylián’s Bella Figura returns to the Boston stage. An exploration of the human form, this sensuous ballet captivates viewers with its raw beauty, sense of curiosity, and delicate intimacy. Known for its enticing music, the ballet is set to a selection of Baroque music, including selections by Lukas Foss, Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, Alessandro Marcello, Antonio Vivaldi, and Giuseppe Torelli.

World Premiere

Ken Ossola will create a world premiere for Boston Ballet, pulling inspiration from Michelangelo’s “non-finito” sculptures Prisoners. Ossola explores the tensions between our mind and body and the perpetual human state of both emergence and incompleteness. Featuring a score composed by Boston Ballet Music Director Mischa Santora, the ballet will envelop audiences into a world of sound, music, and dance.
