Music Director Marcelo Bussiki invites you to an evening of masterworks with their genesis in the world of dance. First, a dance from Borodin’s opera Prince Igor, followed by Bolero from Ravel. Bolero is a Spanish-flavored and seductive orchestral piece written for a ballet, commissioned by a Russian actress and dancer. Finally, the theatrical Petrushka is Stravinsky’s ballet that tells a story of loves and jealousies from an interesting point of view. All are brought to the stage by the BVSO in a night of outstanding live music from the ballet and opera.
