A Dancer’s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky
Watch the Trailer >>
This is an HD film screening of a previously-recorded performance by the New York Philharmonic in 2013.
The New York Philharmonic's program, A DANCER'S DREAM: TWO WORKS BY STRAVINSKY will be screened in cinemas worldwide by SpectiCast beginning September 2013. This one-of-a-kind cinema event features the complete production, behind-the-scenes footage, as well as a brief intermission feature on Stravinsky's history with the New York Philharmonic, with video and other never-before-seen material from the New York Philharmonic Digital Archives.
The New York Post described the show as a ". . .dreamy spectacle that keeps you endlessly on your toes." The NY Times called the production an "inspiring example of how an American orchestra can take a creative leap and reinvent itself" and described of Ms. Mearns' performance ". . .phrases beamed out powerfully."
Blending music with dance, live animation, pre-recorded video, puppetry, and circus arts, A DANCER'S DREAM blurs the lines between reality and imagination, audience and performer. The production turned Avery Fisher Hall into a dream world through costumes, sets, staging, and live filmmaking in which a real-time feed of musicians, puppets, and miniatures was projected above the orchestra. Using Stravinsky's THE FAIRY'S KISS and PETRUSHKA, the production chronicles the story of a young woman (Mearns) and her dream of becoming a dancer. Entranced by the music, she is "kissed" by the passion to become an artist and drawn into the performance, dancing to the complete score of THE FAIRY'S KISS. By the second act, she has completed her transformation into an artist, becoming Columbine in PETRUSHKA.
A DANCER'S DREAM was conducted by Music Director Alan Gilbert and starring New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns in a production created by Giants Are Small. The show was recorded live in New York City at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall June 27 - 29, 2013.
Duration: 115 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission
