Celebrities: Johannes Öhman

Johannes Öhman has been chosen in a unanimous decision by the directors and ballet company of the Göteborgs-Operan to be their new ballet director from the season 2007/2008. Öhman, who has twenty years of experience as a dancer, is presently principal soloist at the Royal Ballet and performing the role of the Widow Simone in “La fille mal gardée”. Alongside his engagement as a soloist, he has worked as artistic director for the touring company Stockholm 59° North since 2002. In this capacity, he has engaged – mainly Swedish – choreographers to create pieces for the company.

This is something he wishes to continue to do as director of the GöteborgsOperans Ballet. He also hopes to be able to take the GöteborgsOperans Ballet on tour. However, he has not yet had time to devise any concrete plans for his future with the company. Lena Andrén
