It approaches issues of immigration and equality. Bernstein's music takes influences from all over the place - geographically and musically - to create this heady mix of musical styles in the form of dance. We're very excited to be joined by Trio Cheverongo who will open the evening with some fantastic Latin music, the source for Bernstein's incredible score which has delighted audiences since its inception in the 1960s."π‘‡β„Žπ‘’ π‘€π‘œπ‘Ÿπ‘˜ π‘œπ‘“ π‘Ž π‘šπ‘Žπ‘‘π‘šπ‘Žπ‘› … π‘ β„Žπ‘’π‘’π‘Ÿ π‘π‘Žπ‘π‘œπ‘β„Žπ‘œπ‘›π‘¦,"Stravinsky changed the face of ballet. Gone are the tutus and waltzes, this is savage, untamed dance music, so shocking at its time that riots broke out at the premiere. He takes old, Baltic folk tunes and reimagines them amidst the drama of pagan ritual and sacrifice, twisting them into music so extraordinary that it still amazes listeners today.We have a Latin band...We have an orchestra...We also have dancers.Delicia Sefiha, Xavier De Santos and Kerry Fitzsimons have choreographed modern dance to this sensational music which demands powerful, impassioned and incredibly physical performances.Get yourself in Motion, 5th May, for an extraordinary experience.Resonance Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Bromilow.
