Saw a preview sample of St. Paul Ballet’s “The Art of Boxing. The Sport of Ballet.” performance at Lake Como Saturday evening. The full Knight Arts Challenge-funded show combining boxers and ballet dancers coming up on June 17 in St. Paul by our artistic partner the St. Paul Ballet and Zoé Emilie Henrot should pack a real artistic punch. Be sure to catch it.
And if you want something to do on Mother’s Day, catch our other artistic partner, the Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, at 4 p.m. at the Roseville Lutheran Church, 1215 Roselawn Ave. West. They’ll be presenting a free performance of Benjamin Britten’s Russian Funeral (1936) for Brass & Percussion and Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 4 in C minor, op. 43. Rush over to see this Russian-themed program.
