The Firebird with Rite of Spring and George Balanchine’s Rubies
Community Center Theater • October 24, 25, 26 – 7:30pm; October 27 – 2:00pm
Three great masterworks share a program inspired by the creative brilliance of Russian tradition. The mythic tale of the mysterious Firebird springs to life as she comes to the aid of Prince Ivan in his quest to free a captive princess and establish a Royal Empire. Celebrating the Rite of Spring’s explosive 100th anniversary, Ron Cunningham’s retelling of this primitive ritual is a riveting, theatrical experience not to be missed. A red hot jazz inspired score provides the perfect backdrop for Balanchine’s witty and sophisticated Rubies.
