Galway Arts Festival and Fabulous Beast Dance bring their co-production of ‘The Rite of Spring’ and ‘Petrushka’ to Galway this week.
Choreographer and director Michael Keegan-Dolan’s Olivier-nominated version of ‘The Rite of Spring’ premiered at the London Coliseum in 2009 to great critical acclaim. Described both as ‘inspired’ and ‘exhilarating’ by The Times of London, the two pieces together create an intoxicating double bill of dance theatre that honours the searing modernity of Stravinsky’s music. The celebrated concert pianists Lidija Bizjak and Sanja Bizjak will accompany both pieces in this thrilling double bill.
‘The Rite of Spring’ and ‘Petrushka’ run until Saturday 20 July at the Black Box Theatre. Tickets, priced at €20-€27, are available from www.galwayartsfestival.com.
