Trip: Boston Ballet to see Spring Experience

May 16 @ 6:00 pm

The bus departs at 6:00 pm for a trip to the Boston Ballet to see Spring Experience. Explore the three ballets that are part of Boston Ballet’s Spring Experience program: William Forsythe Blake Works III (The Barre Project), Jiří Kylián Bella Figura and Ken Ossola World Premier. Blake Works III (The Barre Project): William Forsythe returns to Boston with the dynamic and masterful ballet, Blake Works III (The Barre Project). This work pushes our artform into new territory yet again. The masterpiece was created for Boston Ballet in 2022 and is set to the propulsive and beautifully structured music of composer James Blake. An absolute powerhouse of dance, it is riveting to watch Boston Ballet dancers master Forsythe’s challenging and innovative technique. Bella Figura: A beloved favorite, Jiří Kylián’s Bella Figura returns to the Boston stage. An exploration of the human form, this sensuous ballet captivates viewers with its raw beauty, sense of curiosity, and delicate intimacy. Known for its enticing music, the ballet is set to a selection of Baroque music, including selections by Lukas Foss, Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, Alessandro Marcello, Antonio Vivaldi, and Giuseppe Torelli. World Premiere: Ken Ossola will create a world premiere for Boston Ballet, pulling inspiration from Michelangelo’s “non-finito” sculptures Prisoners. Ossola explores the tensions between our mind and body and the perpetual human state of both emergence and incompleteness. Featuring a score composed by Boston Ballet Music Director Mischa Santora, with electronics composed by Michael Cain, the ballet will envelop audiences into a world of sound, music, and dance.

Residents must have purchased tickets on their own. Brookhaven is only providing transportation. Face masks are highly encouraged but not required in the theater.
