Ghosts, Apollo and Bloom, three ethereal works, were performed exclusively at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica. Ghosts, by master contemporary choreographer Christopher Wheeldon presents a realm where ghosts manifest in a dark watery playground. Apollo, one of George Balanchine’s most iconic and best-loved works, depicts the young Greek god of music being visited and instructed by three Muses. Bloom, by Belgian-Colombian choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, is inspired by the ritual Puja, a worship ritual from Hinduism in which flower offerings are laid out at the door-step 3 times each day. Gala 2022 immediately followed a special performance of Bloom & Ghosts on Saturday, April 23rd.
