DANCE: BOSTON BALLET’S FALL PROGRAM
The company opens its 49th season with two encores from the 2011-12 season and a world premiere (title TBA) from the company’s resident choreographer, Jorma Elo. Christopher Bruce’s “Rooster” has dancers strutting to Rolling Stones tunes such as “Play With Fire” and “Not Fade Away”; William Forsythe’s “The Second Detail” is a kind of high-school-prom piece with a Carrie-like figure in a white Issey Miyake dress. As for the Elo premiere, the only thing certain is that the choreographer will be working on it till the last minute. Oct. 25-Nov. 4. $29-$132. Boston Opera House, Boston. 617-695-6955, www.bostonballet.org
