Tonight, Stravinsky and Beethoven – two of music’s most revolutionary geniuses – tackle these legends head-on, transforming myth into dance in two startlingly original ballet scores.
Vladimir Jurowski conducts these rare full performances, with award-winning Russian puppet and dance company Theater Trikster bringing the two ballets to life with puppets and shadow puppets. Stravinsky’s Journey takes a delightful, distinctive and dazzlingly original turn in this unique performance.
