Before / After

The Göteborg Opera is proud to welcome Annabelle Lopez Ochoa as guest choreographer. She is the creator of two of this evening’s four pieces. One is a completely new creation for The Göteborg Ballet in which she will collaborate with hard rock bass player Magnus Rosén.

The other piece has the title Before After and is a critically acclaimed duet which received wide spread attention when it was presented in New York in 2006.

We are also happy to welcome Tero Saarinen and his ballet Gaspard with music by Maurice Ravel. The work has been described as “watching a silent movie to the accompaniment of ecstatic piano.”

In addition, we will once again be treated to choreographer Jirí Kylián’s rhythmic, funny and teasing Falling Angels, which features eight female dancers and four percussionists.
