Chamber Music Series: Farewell to Italy (Pt. II)

Boston Ballet presents the second half of our tribute to 19th-century composer Fanny Mendelssohn. Watch as Fanny's legacy is brought to life with a performance of her composition The Year. Each movement represents a different month, from the slow summer pace of July to the snowy twinkle of December. Step into the composer's shoes with readings of her personal letters by actor Aimee Doherty.

Our artist/athletes are always pushing themselves to the edge. That passion and energy is what makes watching them so exhilarating.
