The Greek myths are as ancient as the art of music itself – and every bit as powerful. Orpheus tamed Hell with music; they say his melodies could make even rocks and trees dance. Prometheus dared to steal fire from the Gods and gave mankind the gift of creativity. Tonight, Stravinsky and Beethoven – two of music’s most revolutionary geniuses – tackle these legends head-on, transforming myth into dance in two startlingly original ballet scores. Vladimir Jurowski conducts these rare full performances, as Stravinsky’s Journey takes a delightful, distinctive and dazzlingly original turn.
