Boston Ballet is on the town again with Jerome Robbins

But in ballet, Robbins’s choreography always seemed to exist in George Balanchine’s shadow. Perhaps that has started to change. Robbins’s status has definitely risen recently at Boston Ballet, where his “Fancy Free” is the title dance in a three-piece program that begins Thursday.
