Houston Symphony invites you to experience Stravinsky’s revolutionary The Rite of Spring like never before, Friday, May 18 – Sunday, May 20.
Music Director Andrés Orozco-Estrada teams up with Klaus Obermaier and Ars Electronica Futurelab for a performance featuring innovative dancing and 3-D visual effects.
World-renowned pianist Emanuel Ax offers the perfect contrast to Stravinsky’s wild score with Mozart’s refined Piano Concerto No. 27, his final work in the genre.
To open the concert, Ax joins Houston Symphony musicians for some lively chamber music.
