Off The Cuff

Marin Alsop, conductor

Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring

With its clashing harmonies and explosive rhythms, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring was an historic turning point in modern music 100 years ago. Marin Alsop guides the audience through the complexities and elements that even today make this rambunctious work feel edgy. If there’s a riot like there was in 1913 Paris, won’t you want to be there?
