“[Fancy Free] is a terrific addition to the repertory, full of comic flair and brilliant choreography.” Karen Campbell, The Boston Globe, 2012
Featuring the National Arts Centre Orchestra

One of North America’s top ballet companies, Boston Ballet mesmerizes audiences with its sweeping repertoire that showcases the highest caliber of international talent. The evening includes with William Forsythe’s Blake Works I, a light and joyous “love letter to the art of ballet” (The New York Times) set to the poetic ballads of English musician James Blake. George Gershwin’s sultry Rhapsody in Blue accompanies a new work by Boston Ballet Principal Dancer Paulo Arrais. And, the 1940s Broadway vibe of Jerome Robbins’ showstopper Fancy Free to Leonard Bernstein’s witty score will leave audiences enraptured.

Note: smoke machine, ELA, Rhapsody in Blue may contain adult themes
