This years opening performance will be, ahem, en pointe, with the ballerinas swooning to hip and upbeat World War II-era big-band tunes, along with classical, more demure Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky productions. It sounds like an expensive night out, but theatergoers musnt plié deep into their wallets just yet. Seats range from $19 to $169, with the option of a $39 dinner at Prelude by Barton G., the new restaurant inside the opera house. The show begins at 8 p.m.
