Boston Ballet 2018/19 Season Comes To A Close

The Boston Ballet's mixed-repertory program Rhapsody brings its stunning 2018/19 season to a rousing close. A no-holds barred exploration of the company's neo-classical and contemporary roots, Rhapsody ties together an exciting world premiere from a new voice in dance with a trio of works by Russian choreographer Leonid Yakobson and the Balanchine classic Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2 (Imperial Dance).

Marking his choreographic debut at the Boston Opera House stage, principal dancer Paulo Arrais premieres his brand new work ELA, A Rhapsody in Blue. Set to the fizzing, jazzy energy of Gershwin's iconic score, the work examines the power of feminine energy with a cast of 15 men and one woman. This is followed by Pas de Quatre, Rodin and Vestris, three rebellious works by leading soviet-era dance figure Yakobson, whilst the evening closes with a resplendent piece by the Father of American Ballet.
