Boston Ballet presents Rhapsody, a mixed-repertory program featuring four rarely-seen works by George Balanchine and Leonid Yakobson, followed by a world premiere by Boston Ballet Principal Dancer Paulo Arrais.

Transformative, inspiring, and empowering, Rhapsody marks the closure of Boston Balletís 2018-2019 season.

The program kicks off with a collection by Yakobson.

Vestris, a seven-minute solo based on Auguste Vestris, the most famous of the Vestris dynasty of dancers in the 18th century.

Rodin is inspired by the works of French sculptor August Rodin.

Pas de Quatre is Yakobsonís own spin on a work that was originally created in the Romantic era but was then lost.

His choreography formed a sense of sisterhood between the dancers, where the four women link arms and move together as one.

Following Yakobson is George Balanchineís classic, Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.

2, which was choreographed to pay homage to the grandeur of St.

Petersburg, where Balanchine was born.

ELA, Rhapsody in Blue marks the world premiere of Principal Dancer Paulo Arrais.

Inspired by his mother and other female influences, the ballet tells a deeply personal story of one womanís experience of defying expectations and rising against the odds.

Tickets start at $37.
