Boston Ballet Draws Crowd Of Thousands To Free Performance On Common

BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Ballet, which is celebrating its 50th season, drew thousands of people to Boston Common on Saturday night for a free performance.

“Night of Stars on Boston Common” featured a range of works from classical ballet to contemporary dance, including George Balanchine’s “Serenade” and Christopher Bruce’s “Rooster.” The company performed with the Boston Ballet Orchestra, which accompanied “Rooster” with music of The Rolling Stones.

A crowd that rivaled the size of the Red Sox fans packed into Fenway Park across town filled the Boston Common lawn at the corner of Beacon and Charles streets.
