Boston Ballet Presents: Robbins/The Concert
Presented by Boston Ballet
Boston Ballet’s 2016–2017 season concludes with Robbins/The Concert, a triple-bill program featuring works by George Balanchine, Jorma Elo, and Jerome Robbins set to music by several composers: Igor Stravinsky, Frédéric Chopin, Ludwig van Beethoven, J.S. Bach, and Robert Schumann.
The Company premiere of Balanchine’s Stravinsky Violin Concerto adds another work by the seminal choreographer to Boston Ballet’s repertoire.
The world premiere of Elo’s Creatures of Egmont pays homage to his classical roots with a contemporary twist. The program closes with the return of Robbins’ hilarious audience favorite The Concert (Or, The Perils of Everybody).
