Divine Fire

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

The Greek myths are as ancient as the art of music itself – and every bit as powerful.

Orpheus tamed Hell with music; they said his melodies could make even rocks and trees dance. Prometheus dared to steal fire from the Gods, and gave mankind the gift of creativity.

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, as Stravinsky’s Journey takes a delightful, distinctive and dazzlingly original turn.
