Boston Ballet Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen today announced the programming for the 2014-2015 season at the Boston Opera House. Boston Ballet’s 51st season kicks off with the world premiere of Mikko Nissinen’s Swan Lake, featuring glorious new sets and costumes by award winning designer Robert Perdziola. The season continues with the beloved new production of Nissinen’s The Nutcracker and Val Caniparoli’s romantic drama Lady of the Camellias. The spring season heats up with a burst of contemporary and neo-classical choreography from masters such as William Forsythe, Jerome Robbins, Helen Pickett, and Wayne McGregor, including the Company premieres of George Balanchine’s Episodes and Hans van Manen’s Black Cake. Adding to the excitement, Boston Ballet will present world premieres by Resident Choreographer Jorma Elo and Principal Dancer Jeffrey Cirio.
“Next season has shaped up to be very exciting,” said Nissinen. “The new production of Swan Lake will be deeply rooted in tradition with the clean yet luxurious beauty we have come to expect from Perdziola’s designs. After we steal your heart with The Nutcracker and Lady of the Camellias, get ready for a jolt of energy from our three spring repertory programs. I cannot imagine a better way to showcase the strength of our diverse company than with this season’s programming. The future of Boston Ballet starts now.”
