The Rite of Spring Finishing Touches Rehearsal
- Fri 10:00 AM Nov 22, 2019
Whether The Rite of Spring actually caused a full-blown riot at its premiere or it’s just a much-loved myth, come see for yourself what all the fuss was about.
Concert highlights include:
Watch as the talents of your Utah Symphony are stretched to the limit on Stravinsky’s staggeringly colorful and challenging masterpiece The Rite of Spring.
Spend a few minutes in an 18th-century salon as Maestro Thierry Fischer continues his fascinating survey of Haydn’s earliest symphonies.
