Tonight is "A Night of Stars"
Tonight Boston Ballet kicks off its season with its annual gala, this year titled "A Night of Stars." Highlights include excerpts from such recent hits as Balanchine's The Four Temperaments, Christopher Wheeldon's Polyphonia, and Jorma Elo's Brake the Eyes, as well as a performance of Flames of Paris by guest artist Herman Cornejo, and a new work by resident dancer Heather Myers, Found (above left is Karine Seneca in La Sylphide). The entire company will be on display - local balletomanes know this annual blow-out is one of the city's most dazzling nights of dance. And it doesn't cost a fortune, either; $25 tickets are available in person at the Wang Theatre box office.
