The Norwegian National Ballet performs SUITE at the Mikhailovsky Theatre in St. Petersburg on Nov 27/28. The program also features choreographies by Jiri Kylian. Jo Strømgren has toured Russia with 13 different productions already, but SUITE will be somewhat of a surprise – it’s the first time Russians are exposed to his more classical work.

GAÏTÉ SUÉDOISE is halfway in rehearsals with the Royal Swedish Ballet. Jo Strømgren is commissioned to create a ballet about the Swedish royal family, set to the Offenbach music with a similar name. A rather hysterical atmosphere in the studio is the only hint to be given so far. Premiere on January 24th.

ORPHEO received some extremely good reviews after the run at the Norwegian National Opera and was blessed with packed houses and standing ovations. Snapshot is from VG, Norway’s biggest newspaper. Jo Strømgren’s debut as an opera director was definitively a success. As one thing leads to another…more operas are on their way. More info later.
