Abandon your expectations at “Foreign Bodies,” a casual, multi-sensory, one-night-only event with Composer-in-Residence Esa-Pekka Salonen as your guide. See his music: Boston Ballet dances to it in “Obsidian Tear,” “a choreographic breakthrough for Wayne McGregor” (The New York Times), and a live video installation animates “Foreign Bodies.” Witness a new kind of violin concerto by Daníel Bjarnason. Conversation will flow when you get the chance to mingle with the performers.

Esa-Pekka Salonen / Chor. Wayne McGregor “Obsidian Tear” (set to “Lachen verlernt” and “Nyx”)
