Stravinsky's The Wedding with Birmingham Opera Company



"The Wedding is a screaming, shrieking, flat out masterpiece with its rhythmic drive and unique sound world- 4 virtuoso pianists on grand pianos, a dazzling array of percussion, 4 soloists and a chorus. Written as a ballet in 1923 for Diaghilev's Ballet Russes, Stravinsky drew on Russian traditions to conjure up a vivid and intense depiction of the old ways, and the not so old!"

This experimental unseated production was created by director Graham Vick and choreographer Ron Howell. The show encouraged the audience to mix amongst the cast of actors, dancers and singers and even in the orchestra as the story was told. At any one moment you could find yourself within a dance or next to one of the impressive soloists.
