Symphony in Three Movements | May 31, 2020 | Streaming Sunday 9 am – Monday 9 am
Balanchine choreographed several notable masterpieces for the 1972 Stravinsky Festival including the majestic Symphony in Three Movements. Stravinsky had suggested the music as a ballet when the choreographer visited the composer in Hollywood during World War II. Despite its 21-minute length, the piece evokes a fuller symphonic breadth with two instruments, the harp and piano, providing the dominant contrasts. Music by Igor Stravinsky
Each Friday at 11am, Ballet Arizona Dancers will be taking to Facebook Live to read a select dance-inspired children’s story! Books will alternate between English and Spanish.
