About the Concert

Tickets for this event will be available from 12.06.2024 from 10 am.

You can tell whole stories with a great orchestra. And one of the greatest musical storytellers was undoubtedly Igor Stravinsky. The sounds and rhythms he conjured up caused scandals more than 100 years ago, but today they inspire us to create great images, just like in the movies. This is also the case with the legend of the "Firebird" with all its sophisticated colors and instruments: eerie and dark sounds for the immortal magician Kastschaj, bright colors for the firebird and folkloristic music for the prince and princess. Unusual orchestral instruments such as the tambourine and xylophone are also included.
