Igor Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring
The show was created as a co-production between Clipa theatre
and The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra,
conducted by Roni Porat.
The Rite of Spring was commissioned for the Ballet Russes and debuted in Paris in 1913. The
piece has been adapted for stage many times
This adaptation places the orchestra on the stage while the front of the stage is becomes the arena in which the Rite takes place.
Maestro Porat fulfills a pivotal role. He activates the story on stage and is an embodied axis between the orchestra, the music, and the story.
Inspired by the original production, Clipa Theatre describes a society which has brought disaster upon itself, lost its land, with all which that entails,
gravity, fertility, center, hierarchy and direction. The Rite os Spring is about earthy urges opposing Man's mystic yearning towards the sky.
The piece can be performed in a number of musical arrangements: symphony orchestra, chamber orchestra, 2 pianos, and is conducted by Roni Porat.
