August 7, 2019 — (Becket, MA) Boston Ballet returns to Jacob’s Pillow for the first time in over a decade, performing in the Ted Shawn Theatre, August 21-25. 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). Boston Ballet’s program includes excerpts of William Forsythe’s critically acclaimed Playlist (EP), which pairs Forsythe’s daring choreography to a soundtrack pulled straight from today’s top charts; as well as Pas de Quatre and Rodin by Russian classical choreographer Leonid Yakobson; and resident choreographer Jorma Elo’s Bach Cello Suites.
“We are thrilled to welcome back to end Festival 2019 with Boston Ballet, a fellow Massachusetts based cultural institution with an international profile. We’re excited to present excerpts of William Forsythe’s newest work, showcase Jorma Elo’s masterful choreography, and present ballets by Leonid Yakobson for the first time at Jacob’s Pillow,” says Jacob’s Pillow Director Pamela Tatge.
