“Robbins/The Concert” brings laughs and color to stage

Premiering on Friday, May 5, “Robbins/The Concert” opened its doors to Boston for a show of spectacular color, minimalistic costumes and laughs all across the theatre. The Boston Opera House will house the show until May 27.

The show takes its stand to poke fun at the behavior and misbehavior of concert-goers, according to Boston Ballet’s website. The composers Igor Stravinsky, Frédéric Chopin, Ludwig van Beethoven, J.S. Bach and Robert Schumann lend their legendary music as a perfect companion to the dancers.

The two hour and three act set of dancers featured minimalistic sets and costumes, with contrasting backgrounds. The black leotards and tutus on the dancers looked flawless against the bright teal backdrop covering the entire stage. The ballet was funny, shockingly, as ballets are not usually something I find myself chuckling at. With no words, but actions, the third act had motions of the dancers making the audience fight back laughter but could only be stifled for so long.
