The Boston Symphony Orchestra opened the Tanglewood season Friday with a fancy affair at its summer retreat in the Berkshires. But before settling into the shed for an all-Tchaikovsky program featuring violinist Joshua Bell, guests enjoyed a Russian-themed party in an elaborately decorated tent overlooking Ozawa Hall.
