Boston Ballet Announces 2006-07 Season

Classic Arts News   Boston Ballet Announces 2006-07 Season
Boston Ballet will present George Balanchine's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Rudolf Nureyev's Don Quixote, and Maina Gielgud's staging of Giselle in 2006-07, the company announced.

Nureyev's version of Don Quixote, which focuses on a romance involving two relatively minor characters rather than the adventures of the title character, was first seen in Boston in 1982, with Nureyev in the starring role. It opens the season in October.

Balanchine's Midsummer, set to Mendelssohn's music, will be performed by the company for the first time in February 2007. Giselle ends the season in May.

Also on the schedule are Mikko Nissinen's version of the The Nutcracker and two mixed programs: an all-Balanchine program and a program of new works by Christopher Wheeldon, Jorma Elo, and Val Caniparoli.
