To open its 55th season, Boston Ballet celebrates the work of dance icon Jerome Robbins with Genius at Play at the Boston Opera House September 6–16. The work of Robbins and composer and Massachusetts native Leonard Bernstein—both of whom were born 100 years ago this year—is presented in Fancy Free, followed by the witty Interplay, set to Morton Gould’s jazzy score, and Glass Pieces, which features the music of Philip Glass. With a trio like this, Genius at Play is sure to live up to its name.
