Igor STRAVINSKY The Rite of Spring

Nothing is as invigorating as rousing from a long winter by robust rhythms and rhapsodic relevés. The synchronicities of live music and dance awaken the senses in this mesmeric menagerie of Spring. Join Orchestra Iowa and Ballet Quad Cities for this original production of one of the most influential compositions of the 20th century—The Rite of Spring.

This presentation of The Rite of Spring is made possible by GreatAmerica.
