From Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe:

A sparkling sneak peek from Boston Ballet
From the opening fanfare to the closing processional “Défilé,’’ Boston Ballet’s “Night of Stars’’ was a rousing celebration of the company’s official move to its new home, the Boston Opera House. It was especially fitting to open Saturday night’s gala fund-raiser with an orchestra-only fanfare, given the newly renovated pit created for the company’s first-rate orchestra, led by Jonathan McPhee.

Smaller, bigger, better - Boston Ballet’s fourth ‘Night of Stars’
Is Boston in the midst of a ballet boom? You could certainly believe that if you attended Boston Ballet’s fourth annual season-opening gala last Saturday. ....There was more energy on stage than there was last year, and also in the sold-out house.

Boston Globe, front page, above the fold, 2 column+ photo, Isaac Akiba, first BB CityDance grad to join the Boston Ballet, rehearsing with Misa Kuranaga for his role in Giselle.
See the feature article by Goeff Edgers: Native talent

There is also a link to a brief interview with Akiba (preceded by a commerical message): here

(Today, 9/30/2009, you can get a sense of the front page layout and see two photos of Akiba here.)

In the Boston Herald Julia Rappaport writes about the opening of Giselle and changes in the Boston Ballet's approach to marketing, its web site, etc.
See Boston Ballet hosts House warming party with ‘Giselle’
The article includes a link to a photo gallery here

From Thea Singer in the Boston Globe:
Quote:
In 'Giselle,' motion plumbs emotion, depths to pinnacle
Maina Gielgud’s production of the 19th-century Romantic classic “Giselle,’’ danced with eloquence and depth last night by the Boston Ballet, is so lucid in its portrayal of the work’s central themes that each time you see it, you grasp something new, not only about the piece’s structure, dynamics, and steps but about the capacities of the human soul.

From Keith Powers in the Boston Herald: ‘Giselle’ kicks ballet into high gear
Quote:
To appreciate some ballets, it helps to have a point of entry. Knowing the score, perhaps, or having a familiarity with the story.

With “Giselle,” which kicked off the Boston Ballet’s season at the Opera House on Thursday, no such knowledge is required.

Even novice balletgoers won’t have to crack the program. Simply take a seat and enjoy one of the most compelling ballets imaginable.


From Jeffrey Gantz in the Boston Phoenix: No place like home - Boston Ballet's Giselle fits right in
** Note that Gantz' article was updated as of 10/07/2009 to include a review of all four casts. **
