 “Shut up!”, the Parisian beau monde yelled at each other on the 29th of May, 1913. The Théâtre des Champs Elysées was as if struck by an earthquake and the gendarmes had to spring into action. The cause of this disruption? The spectacular première of Stravinsky’s ballet Le Sacre du Printemps. In spite of this row, both friend and foe quickly reached an agreement: Le Sacre is a ground-breaking masterpiece.

The greatest scandal in music history
And it is quite special too that this orchestral piece is a public favourite as well. Maybe that is what truly characterises a masterpiece. Our Russian chief-conductor Dmitry Liss will no doubt get the most out of an interpretation of this pagan rite of spring you already know is going to be memorable. But before that, the Firebird will soar to heights unheard of and star violinist Sergey Krylov will go to bat for the gladsome Violin Concerto, full of classical grandeur. “Krylov’s vision is warm and full of Russian emotions”, Dmitry Liss explained. A three course menu that’s guaranteed to be finger-licking good.

To keep the waiting time at the bar to a minimum, a 'walletless break' applies to this concert. You pay for your break drink in advance when ordering your entrance ticket. So you can enjoy your company and your drink for longer!
