MTT leads a special evening dedicated to the magnificence and power of the Russian masters. Witches, princes, curses and princesses are at the heart of the fairy tale that inspired Sergei Prokofiev’s satirical opera, and its Suite captures all the action-packed adventure. From high-stakes card games and grotesque marches, to love duets and a final trap door demise, the drama unfolds with each fantastic phrase. Since its riot-inducing premiere over 100 years ago, Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring has become one of classical music’s greatest hits. Primal, raucous and awe-inspiring, don’t miss what MTT calls “a burst of creative power that shook music to its foundations.”
