As a part of Mostly Mozart’s focus on Stravinsky, we’re presenting Stravinsky on Film. Join us in the Walter Reade Theater on August 6 for a documentary on Stravinsky; 1969 footage of him conducting the Hungarian Radio Orchestra in Symphony of Psalms; a 1992 performance of Oedipus Rex directed by Julie Taymor and featuring Jessye Norman; and The Rite of Spring performed by Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal and The Cleveland Orchestra conducted by Pierre Boulez.
Not included in the program: this footage of Stravinsky conducting his Firebird suite. If you like this, the program at Walter Reade will be even better (and much higher quality).
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (LCPA) serves three primary roles: presenter of superb artistic programming, national leader in arts and education and community relations, and manager of the Lincoln Center campus.
