The Rite of Spring

-

The great Russian composer Igor Stravinsky created “The Rite of Spring” (Le Sacre du Printemps) for Diaghilev’s Ballet Russe in 1913, which was originally choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky. He said at the time “I tried to evoke the mystery and surge of the creative power of spring…like the whole earth cracking…I was guided by no system whatever, I heard, and I wrote what I heard.” This version choreographed for Oregon Ballet Theatre in 2009 by Christopher Stowell, was hailed by critics as “a sleek, sophisticated, thoroughly neo-classical version” of this famous ballet.  Robert Weiss’ Idyll adds to the program, celebrating the 200th birthday of Richard Wagner.  Also featuring  Zalman Raffael’s new hip hop ballet A Street Symphony.
