BalletX commissioned Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo, resident choreographer of Boston Ballet, to create Scenes View 2. Set to music by J.S. Bach, the work featured dark, atmospheric lighting and showcased Elo’s signature choreographic style that combines sharp, angular movements, dynamic athleticism, and classical ballet vocabulary. Marking BalletX’s first commission by an international choreographer, Scenes View 2 premiered during the 2006 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
