The celebrated Mariinsky Orchestra and their renowned conductor Valery Gergiev take the stage for a trio of Stravinsky’s most beloved ballet scores. Each vividly portrays a compelling dramatic story: the heroic Prince Ivan and his magical Firebird battle an evil sorcerer; a clown-puppet comes to life to pursue a beautiful ballerina; and a young maiden dances to her death in an ancient pagan sacrifice.
Please note that this concert will be performed with two intermissions.
Stravinsky The Firebird
