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

In recognition and thanks for invaluable donor support, the NAC Orchestra and NAC Dance grant insider access to donors to audit a working rehearsal in Southam Hall. Often, an artist or member of the artistic team gives insights into the creative process and invites questions from donors. Seating is limited.

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
