Its primordial pulse is all-consuming and intoxicating. A century after The Rite of Spring’s scandalous première, its undertow of swirling menace, snarling brutality, and visceral, provocative power continues to astound.
Join Music Director Gustavo Gimeno and an expanded Orchestra, long after the sun has set, for a heart-pounding performance of Stravinsky’s notorious masterpiece. What better way to celebrate the arrival of spring after a long Canadian winter!
Stay for a post-concert party in the lobby of Roy Thomson Hall!
