Boston Ballet presents Classic Balanchine, an array of iconic and diverse works by esteemed choreographer George Balanchine. The program opens with Balanchine’s allegorical Prodigal Son, a powerful tale of sin and redemption, followed by the return of Stravinsky Violin Concerto, a tribute to his friendship and many collaborations with the celebrated composer. The Company premiere of Balanchine’s dreamlike Chaconne concludes the program. “This program highlights masterpieces from across Balanchine’s career from his earliest works to the innovative modern aesthetic that revolutionized ballet,” said Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen.
