Concert lasts around 90 minutes, without intermission.

This concert will explore how Russian folklore influenced Stravinsky’s choice of subject matter — an entertaining look at how Russian tales are rich with myth and fables. It will feature Stravinsky’s three exceptional pieces of ballet music: the dazzling Firebird, the magical Petrushka and the revolutionary Rite of Spring.
