The Boston Ballet has a very exciting production coming in March called DREAMstate, which includes three very different performances.
3-Part ballet: classic, modern, and rock (Mar 17 -27th)
The first ballet opens with George Balanchine’s Chaconne. Followed by Bella Figura (shown above), a contemporary ballet choreographed by Jiří Kylián and danced by The Boston Ballet back in 2011. I remember seeing this opening night and being surprised when I realized female dancers were topless.
The production will conclude with The Boston Ballet performing what I’ll refer to as a “Rock Ballet” with a world premiere called DEVIL’S/eye. The dance is choreographed by Stephen Galloway to music by The Rolling Stones, including Wild Horses, Paint it Black, Midnight Rambler, and Jumping Jack Flash.
DREAMstate performances will run from March 17-27, 2022 and tickets are now on sale. Tickets start at $39, and if you make your purchase by Tuesday, February 22 you can save $20 by using the code REALM2B.
I love the Rolling Stones but have never been to see a ballet.
I picked up two tickets to check it out with my husband.
