“Alan Gilbert is taking the orchestra places few others would venture. And we get to go along.” – Craig Duff, TIME (of The Cunning Little Vixen)
The creative team behind Le Grand Macabre and The Cunning Little Vixen
(New York Magazine’s No. 1 Classical Music Events of 2010 and 2011) returns,
this time transforming Avery Fisher Hall into the icy Swiss Alps and a mysterious
Russian carnival for A Dancer’s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky.
The New York Philharmonic brings Stravinsky’s ballet scores to life, and
Giants Are Small whimsically blends music with ballet, puppetry, video projection,
circus, theater, and more to conjure a fantastical dream world where a passionate
ballerina gets caught up in a blizzard, dodges jugglers, and spars with puppets.
Get whisked away with us in this experience you won’t soon forget.
If you can't make it to the performance or want to re-live the Dream, you'll be able to beginning in September when it hits a big screen near you. Visit dreamonscreen.com for the latest.
