Gergiev's Stravinsky Festival


One of our members git free tickets for his family to Gergiev's Stravinsky Festival and even got the autograph for the club.


Stravinsky’s Renard tells the tale of a fox who makes his career from tricking the other farm dwellers, the cock, cat and ram, but whose pride eventually gets the better of him – needless to add, the fox gets his comeuppance. The Soldier’s Tale recounts the story of a soldier who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for his greatest worldly desires: riches, power, youth and wisdom. In an unsettling finale, the devil returns to claim his prize accompanied by the sounds of mechanistic, incessant drumming.
