Stravinsky Festival I

MAY 3, 4, 6, 7 mat

Approximately 1 hr 55 min

The Festival Ignites with a Rousing Program of Singular Stravinsky-Scored Ballets

Stravinsky wrote the delightful, spirited Fireworks as a wedding gift for his mentor Rimsky-Korsakov’s daughter; upon hearing Fireworks, famed impresario Serge Diaghilev commissioned the original Firebird score. Firebird is presented here as restaged by Balanchine and Robbins, with evocative designs by Marc Chagall that capture the magic and mystery of the ballet’s fantastical tale, following two additional works set to eponymous Stravinsky scores: NYCB Resident Choreographer Justin Peck’s vibrant Scherzo Fantastique, with strikingly colorful costumes by frequent-Peck collaborators Reid Bartelme and Harriet Jung; and Balanchine’s bold and breathtakingly kinetic Symphony in Three Movements, choreographed for the original 1972 Stravinsky Festival.
