Fall Program, Boston Ballet

John-Lam-by-Gene-Schiavone-282x300

For my eighth birthday, I asked for season tickets for the Boston Ballet and was lucky enough to get them. The first show of the season was The Fall Program which had three parts: a world premiere by Resident Choreographer Jorma Elo, Christopher Bruce’s Rooster set to music by The Rolling Stones, and The Second Detail, an electrifying piece by William Forsythe.  The program opening with the infectious Rooster, which was a mix between ballet and jazz.  The costumes were sleek black with pops of color that set the mood.  Next came Elo’s work, a traditional ballet which included the highlight of a little boy who danced, like me.  Finally, Forsythe’s piece was modern and techno-feeling; it was stark and hard for me to understand the staging.  I’m not as much a fan of the constant botma high kicks, so it was not my favorite of the three.
