Boston Ballet Fancy Free
is a famous American ballet by a famous American ballet company. Its story takes place in New York City
during the war and it features three sailors who have just arrived on their shore leave and have wandered into the city in search of entertainment. They soon meet up with two girls and then move on to dance with them. However, they are faced with a problem; only two can dance at any time. The story then moves on from here and follows the way they solve their problem. It is an interesting and emotional tale that is also quite hilarious. The original cast of this ballet featured Muriel Bentley, Janet Reed and Shirley Eckl as the three girls and John Kriza, Harold Lang and Jerome Robbins himself as the three sailors.
