Boston Ballet presents Thrill of Contact May 14-24

 Balanchine, Robbins, Forsythe, Jeffrey CirioBoston Ballet’s final show of the season, Thrill of Contact, opens later this week and runs from May 14-24.  If you have never been to the ballet or if it has been a few years since your last visit, this is the perfect opportunity to see the versatility of Boston Ballet dancers.

The final production of the season, Thrill of Contact, is a striking compilation of precision and impressive athleticism featuring works by Balanchine, Robbins, Forsythe, and a world premiere by  Boston Ballet’s Principal Dancer, Jeffrey Cirio.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again… Boston is fortunate to have such a talented ballet to call our own and you may be pleasantly surprised by how much you love attending their performance in the beautiful Opera House in Boston’s Theater District so make a night of it and come out to support Boston’s arts scene.

Boston Ballet presents: Shades of Sound

Shades of SoundThe Boston Ballet latest production, Shades of Sound, will open on Thursday, March 19th and run through Sunday, March 29th at the Boston Opera House.

The program will include Chroma with one of the largest groups of Boston Ballet Orchestra musicians in its history.  According to the press release the production will also include Episodes and Black Cake.  While I’m not familiar with the second and third presentations, I absolutely love Chroma and am sorry I will not be able to get to the Ballet for opening night or their opening weekend.

If you have not made plans for the weekend and you like contemporary dance, I suggest checking out the Boston Ballet.  Click the link below to learn more about Chroma, Episodes and Black Cake.
