A visceral marriage of two tales of slaughtered innocence, The Rite of Spring/Romeo and Juliet pairs Stravinsky’s ballet and orchestral concert work with Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy. Performed in four-hand piano and commedia half-mask, the stories interweave passion, rage, despair and sacrifice to create an exciting reinterpretation of two great classic works.
The latest production by Concert Theatre, a young company which combines live classical music and theatre, brings together pianists from the Royal Academy of Music, Lecoq-trained performers and mask specialists Trestle Theatre.
