The 2016/2017 Boston Ballet season opens tonight with “Le Corsaire”, which is loosely based on Byron’s poem “The Corsair“, a love story that revolves around a slave girl and the two men who love her, a Turkish pasha and a pirate. You can read the full synopsis of the three act ballet here.

The Boston Ballet first performed this ballet in 1997 as “The Pirate”, but  artistic director, Mikko Nissinen, opted for a different version this time. Inspired by the Czech choreographer Liska production for the Bavarian State Opera Ballet and the stunning sets and costumes, “Le Corsaire” promises to be a dramatic and beautiful ballet. I look forward to enjoying tonight’s performance and suggest you purchase tickets now before the Boston Ballet production sells out.

Boston earns perfect MEI score (again)

Human Rights Campaign MEI, LGBTQ equality rankingsThe Municipal Equality Index (MEI) examines how inclusive municipal laws, policies, and services are of the LGBTQ people who live and work there in more than 500 cities from every state in the U.S.

Cities are rated based on non-discrimination laws, the municipality as an employer, municipal services, law enforcement and the city leadership’s public position on equality.

This year marks the fifth year of this annual edition, and I’m proud to share that each year, my hometown, Boston has achieved a perfect score.
