RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Scheherazade

The Boston Ballet and its artistic director Mikko Nissinen join Andris Nelsons and the BSO for an evening celebrating dance and storytelling.

Stravinsky’s Apollon musagète opens the program with a tale of the Greek god Apollo and three muses of artistic inspiration; choreographer George Balanchine described this collaboration with Stravinsky as “a turning point” in his life for its innovative marriage of classical themes and jazz ideas.

The program also includes Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov, inspired by the Thousand and One Nights tales, brought to life with dramatic music.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
