We are excited to welcome you to 19 Clarendon Street for this season’s Black Box Experience series. Get up close and personal with Boston Ballet and experience creative projects you won’t see on the main stage. All performances take place in our intimate black box theater. Tickets are limited, so explore the programs below and save your seats before shows sell out.
A Fiddler’s Tale
Our music series continues with a live performance by members of the Boston Ballet Orchestra. Listen to Wynton Marsalis’ jazzy composition A Fiddler’s Tale, his contemporary response to Igor Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale. The performance will be coupled with narration written by poet Stanley Crouch, who weaves a cautionary tale about a young violinist tempted to sell her soul to a record producer. A darkly poetic performance that highlights the versatility of Boston Ballet’s musicians and pays tribute to every artist’s ongoing struggle.
