Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite

THURSDAY · SEPTEMBER 21, 2023 · 7:30 PM

Our new Northshore Classics season opens with Igor Stravinsky’s Pulcinella, originally a ballet with arias for soprano, tenor, and bass vocal soloists. Stravinsky later extracted a suite of eight movements from his ballet and used instrumental passages to replace the singing roles. Experience a work that retains the charm of Baroque dances mixed with the harmonic and rhythmic inventiveness of twentieth-century Stravinsky.

Our final program on the Northshore brings the series full circle with another ballet-derived suite in eight movements.
