Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring
Michael Francis leads a night devoted to the great tradition of ballet music – from the breathtaking beauty of Tchaikovsky’s classic Swan Lake to the enthralling madness of the only piece to spark a riot at an orchestra concert, Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. The concert starts with a different kind of movement and rhythm, Michael Abels’ Delights & Dances, a multicultural mix of jazz, blues, bluegrass and Latin elements from the composer best known for his Oscar-winning score to Get Out.
