Three scenes from a revolution. Sir Simon Rattle conducts Stravinsky’s three great ballets – The Firebird, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring – in one electrifying concert.
A magical bird outwits a green-clawed demon. A puppet judders into life at the Shrovetide Fair. And a pagan tribe summons the forces of nature, in music so violent that even 100 years later, we’re still feeling the aftershock.
110 years ago, Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes turned western art upside down, and Igor Stravinsky wrote the soundtrack. From the folk magic of the Firebird, to the fairground revels of Petrushka and the shattering rhythmic explosions of The Rite of Spring, it’s all about colour, energy and dazzling artistry. And believe us, when Sir Simon conducts three of his signature works in one incredible night, that’s exactly what you’ll get.
The performance is expected to finish around 10pm, including two 20 minute intervals. Please note the earlier start time.
