I went to this last year. It was amazing. The performers are some of the best in the world, and in between dances they spoke to the audience, fielded questions, and explained what they were doing. It revealed the true difficulty and complexity of appearing as graceful as they do.
Pas de Deux and Solo Variations 2:
Boston Ballet’s Kathleen Breen Combes
and Yuri Yanowsky
October 1 at 7:30 p.m.
They’re back! Boston Ballet Principal Dancers Kathleen Breen Combes and Yuri Yanowsky, two of today’s most exciting ballet artists, return to Strider with another bravura program of pas de deux and solo work. Combes, hailed by the New York Times as “a ballerina of colossal scale and boldness,” is among the country’s foremost Balanchine interpreters, and Yanowsky was recently called “brilliantly versatile” by the UK’s What’sOnStage.com.
