Principal Dancers Viktorina Kapitonova and Tigran Mkrtchyan will perform the world premiere of Story of a Memory.
The program will also feature new live capture footage of Elo’s hit Plan to B, a six-dancer work set to music by Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber originally created to reflect Elo’s career change from dancer to choreographer. The company first performed it in 2004 and has also taken it on tour to London, Helsinki, and New York (at the David H. Koch Theatre).
The pas de deux from Bach Cello Suites, which Boston Ballet premiered in 2015, is also being filmed for this presentation and will feature Principal Dancers Lia Cirio and Paulo Arrais. It is set to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suites Nos. 1 & 2; Boston Ballet Orchestra cellist Ron Lowry is the soloist who will acompany the couple onstage.
In addition to this new footage, Celebrating Jorma Elo will explore many of his other works with archival footage, including C. to C. (Close to Chuck), Sharper Side of Dark, Creatures of Egmont, and Fifth Symphony of Jean Sibelius.
