Off The Cuff: Stravinsky Pulcinella

Off The Cuff

Marin Alsop, conductor

STRAVINSKY Pulcinella, Ballet in One Act 

Pulcinella brought together Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, Stravinsky, and Picasso—who created sets and costumes—in a whole new direction after the riotous premiere of the Rite of Spring. Discover how Stravinsky fell in love with the forgotten music and world of commedia dell’arte clowns.
