This seems to me to be a very impressive season. My particular favorites would be "La Sylphide," the Cranko "R&J," "Bayadere" and "Dark Elegies."

I'm very interested in the program with all the premieres as well. But then I'm a sucker for new works.

The overall season sounds good to us too. We've been thinking of cutting back from seeing everything twice to only once, but not this coming season!

Here is a link to a summary with some comments, from Goeff Edgers in the Boston Globe: Coming to the ballet: Balanchine, world premieres

I just received an email from Boston Ballet, with info on special ticket prices for student/youth subscription ($100 for 5 performances...) and also program changes. In early May they will present Swan Lake (instead of La Bayadère), and the final "Three Masterpieces" program will include Concerto Barocco, Dark Elegies, and In The Upper Room. Updated program info is here.
