Viva Spring

Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, Viva Vivaldi, and more

Rite of Spring
Viva Vivaldi


April 5, 2013 - 8:00pm

Artistic Director Douglas Martin tackles Stravinsky’s influential and provocative score, The Rite of Spring, on the centennial of its controversial premiere, and gives the ballet’s ceremonial pagan sacrifice narrative a twist.  This ballet is at once a celebratory ode to the advent of spring and a statement on the theme of ritualistic behavior and sacrifice.  In addition, ARB will be dancing a new work by Patrick Corbin, former Joffrey Ballet dancer who is known for his athletic contemporary choreography, and Viva Vivaldi, a charming and virtuosic work by famed Joffrey Ballet choreographer Gerald Arpino.
