Boston Ballet’s recent annual ball raised $1.8 million. More than 500 people were slated to attend the gala at The Castle at Park Plaza for cocktails, dinner, auctions, and dancing, of course.

The ball celebrated Boston Ballet’s partnership with choreographer William Forsythe and featured preview performances of his upcoming work. (“Full on Forsythe” will have its world premiere at the Boston Opera House March 7-17.)
