October 22-November 1, 2015
Experience the athleticism and power of Third Symphony of Gustav Mahler: A Ballet by John Neumeier. Hailed as "a work of genius" by Clive Barnes of New York Post, this epic masterpiece, choreographed to Mahler's longest symphony, expresses a dynamic array of images and emotion; from creation and passion to death and heavenly life. Mahler initially envisioned his symphony to be "something the likes of which the world has never yet heard!"
Neumeier skillfully reflects the drama of Mahler's music, creating a powerful spectacle of human strength and technical ability. As the first North American company to perform this iconic work, Boston Ballet kicks off the season with a musical tour de force and full immersion into the dramatic world of movement and sound. Seventy-eight musicians from the Boston Ballet Orchestra join forces with premiere ensemble New World Chorale and international opera sensation Sarah Pelletier for a sensory experience unlike anything you've ever heard-or seen-before.
