Wagner and Stravinsky

Chen Yi – Mount a Long Wind
Igor Stravinsky – Firebird Ballet Highlights
Richard Wagner – Siegfried’s Funeral

The turbulent and emotional funeral music for the hero of the Ring cycle caps off our classical finale in Wagner’s bicentennial year. Highlights from the original version of Stravinsky’s celebrated Firebird ballet will bring over 100 musicians to the Rouse Theatre stage. Chen Yi’s work is a colorful exploration of music from her native China, and the dazzling talents of our Young Artist Competition winners will astound you!
