New Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads the Philadelphia Orchestra in a dramatic, 21st-century treatment of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, performed in Philadelphia's Verizon Hall. This seminal work received its U.S. premiere in both staged and concert versions in Philadelphia, under the baton of Leopold Stokowski. Now, in a first-of-its-kind partnership with Philadelphia Live Arts and the New York-based Ridge Theater Company, viewers will witness a visually powerful performance featuring dancers, video projection, dramatic staging, and theatrical lighting.
The program opens with the Wagner's Siegfried's Idyll and also features star pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, performing Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major, which also received its first American performances in Philadelphia.
