It's such a thrill to watch a live performance of the ballet and I'm so grateful to be working with the Boston Ballet for costume production, opening nights and on occasion photographing from the wings!
Last night I had the honor of attending the Dress Rehearsal for the Boston Ballet's newest production: Pricked, a repertory program with the first being the breathtaking "Études", an ode to classical ballet.
The other two pieces in Pricked are making their American premieres, "D.M.J" is a heart-breakingly beautiful piece while "Cacti" (with real cacti on stage) is invigorating, powerful and truly a work of art.
As is the Boston Opera House. Without the hustle of the crowds and ushers, it really was a treat to take in the beauty of the interior, and also pick a different seat during intermissions. :) During a dress rehearsal the curtain stays open and the artistic staff, including director Mikko Nissinen, choreographers and ballet masters interact with the company of dancers.
So, with only the orchestra between me and the stage...here's a look at Pricked: "Études"...
Opening night is TONIGHT, May 8-18.
