Flm Screening: "Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring"

Tuesday Sep 22, 2009 7:00 PM | Geography building (GRG), room 102

The Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies presents a screening of the film, "Stravinsky's Rite of Spring."

Michael Tilson Thomas and the musicians of the San Francisco Symphony trace the roots of Igor Stravinsky’s musical inspiration, leading up to his collaboration with the great ballet impresario Serge Diaghilev and his star dancer Vaslav Nijinsky in the shocking and erotic rite of spring. 

Attendees at this event will have the opportunity to enter a drawing to win two tickets to the Ballet Austin Season Opener of "The Firebird and Swan Lake" (Act II). The drawing will be held after the final film screening on Sept. 24.
