The Boston Ballet and its artistic director Mikko Nissinen join Andris Nelsons and the BSO for an evening celebrating dance and storytelling. Stravinsky’s Apollo opens the program with a tale of the Greek god Apollo and three muses of artistic inspiration; choreographer George Balanchine described this collaboration with Stravinsky as “a turning point” in his life for its innovative marriage of classical themes and jazz ideas. Also on the program is the mighty Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov, a vivid portrayal of the Arabian Nights tales, brought to life with searing and dramatic music.
