Santa Barbara Symphony Presents
The Rite of Spring

Nir Kabaretti, Conductor
Ensemble Theatre Company Jonathan Fox, Executive Artistic Director
State Street Ballet William Soleau, Co-Artistic Director

The Santa Barbara Symphony teams with State Street Ballet and Ensemble Theatre Company for performances marking the 100th anniversary of The Soldier’s Tale, Igor Stravinsky’s Faustian parable about a deserting soldier who loses his soul to the devil. Though based on a Russian folk tale, this unique theatrical and dance work is far removed from Russian traditionalism, and instead embraces a broad array of musical styles. Paired with Stravinsky’s landmark ballet The Rite of Spring, a work that changed the course of 20th-century music like no other.
