6/3 & 6/6: Stravinsky and the Ballets Russes

Posted By on Tue, Jun 2, 2009 at 5:00 PM

The famed Ballets Russes — which caused quite a sensation 100 years ago because of its collaborations with visual artists, composers and dancers — is long gone. But the Kirov Ballet recreated some of that old magic by revisiting the Russes’ work with Igor Stravinsky in three one-act performances that feature the composer’s music — including Vaslav Nijinsky’s famous staging of “The Rite of Spring.” (Stravinsky’s “Firebird Suite” and a new staging of “The Wedding” were also on the program.) The Kirov Ballet filmed its St. Petersburg performance in HD, and it screens at 7 p.m. Wednesday, and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts., 216.321.5411). Tickets: $15. — Michael Gill
