Boston Ballet’s 2019–2020 spring season opens with rEVOLUTION, a dynamic program showcasing three choreographers who transformed the world of ballet: George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, and William Forsythe.

rEVOLUTION runs Feb 27–Mar 8 at the Citizens Bank Opera House.

Considered the “father of American ballet,” George Balanchine ignited a revolution with his distinctly modern approach to choreography.

Set to original music by renowned composer Igor Stravinsky, Balanchine’s Agon is often referred to as the apex of their many collaborations and storied friendship.

Jerome Robbins’ Glass Pieces captures the heart and energy of metropolitan life with choreography set to music by Philip Glass.

The ballet’s score pulls from the opera Akhnaten along with Glass’s Rubric and Façades, both from his album Glassworks.

Glass Pieces, which premiered in 1983, plays with recurrent rhythms to create intricate patterns for the ensemble of 42 dancers.

Forsythe’s In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated was created for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1987 after Rudolf Nureyev invited him to create the work.

It was an immediate global sensation and is considered “the work that changed ballet forever” (The Guardian).

The premiere put Forsythe on the map and garnered him the international recognition that ignited his career.
