Set not in a specific time or place but rather on a vertical canvas of sorts, this acrobatic dance and theatre piece contemplates the role of the "other," and how we define ourselves through and against it. Just when one thinks it isn’t possible to find any more evolution in circus acts, Les 7 doigts de la main will leave you stunned.
Renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman recently opened the BSO’s 132nd season as both performer and conductor for an all Beethoven evening.
This weekend, BSO assistant conductor Marcelo Lehninger leads a program pairing the Romantic with the ruminative. American violinist Joshua Bell is soloist in Bernstein's Serenade inspired by Plato's "Symposium", a dialogue on the nature and value of love. Also on the program are two audience favorites: Tchaikovsky's emotionally charged fantasy-overture "Romeo and Juliet", and Dvorák's bucolic Symphony No. 8.
