The New York Philharmonic will present A Dancer's Dream June 27-29 at Avery Fisher Hall.
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.
