Explore Boston’s hottest events this fall, from the ballet to Broadway shows and more — you’re not going to want to miss out!

1. MY OBSESSION BY BOSTON BALLET (10/06/22 TO 10/16/22)

Witness four powerful ballets that explore our obsessions and devotions—to gods, lovers, music, and each other. This season opener stimulates the senses at every turn with irresistible music and enrapturing visuals. The Company will perform two works by George Balanchine, the foremost neo-classical choreographer of the 20th century. Apollo brings humanity to Greek mythology, and Allegro Brillante highlights the dancers’ athletic ability in a 16-minute work of pure, joyous dance. With sweeping scores and stunning tableaus, Balanchine’s ballets are love letters to dance itself. Attendees are also in for a thrill with Stephen Galloway’s DEVIL’S/eye, which is set to music by the Rolling Stones.

Dedicated entirely to the influential years the British Guiana-born artist spent in the United States, this exhibit takes you through Bowling’s decade spent living in the U.S. from 1966 to ’75. Energized by the lively art scene in New York from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s, Bowling was able to create pieces that championed artistic freedom regardless of biographical background.
