<i>Rite of Spring</i>
2016/2017 State Street Ballet
Rite of Spring
Single Tickets and Subscriptions go on sale 6/16/2016

Rite of Spring is the centerpiece of this contemporary program, and it promises to be a stellar world premiere. The ballet is set on the company by resident choreographer William Soleau, to the score by Igor Stravinsky, who described it as "a musical-choreographic work, representing pagan Russia...unified by a single idea: the mystery and great surge of the creative power of spring.” The ritualistic and avant-garde nature of the piece delivers much to contemplate in its exploration of contemporary movement.

Tickets*: Patron (loge or box seating) $104. Single performance tickets: $56, $46, $36. State Street Ballet Season Package of three or more performances: $46, $40, $30. Students/children $24.
