The New York Philharmonic’s program, A Dancer’s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky is a one-of-a-kind cinema event features the complete production, behind-the-scenes footage, as well as a brief intermission feature on Stravinsky’s history with the New York Philharmonic, with video and other never-before-seen material from the New York Philharmonic Digital Archives.
Blending music with dance, live animation, pre-recorded video, puppetry, and circus arts, A DANCER’S DREAM blurs the lines between reality and imagination, audience and performer. The production turned Avery Fisher Hall into a dream world through costumes, sets, staging, and live filmmaking in which a real-time feed of musicians, puppets, and miniatures was projected above the orchestra. Using Stravinsky’s THE FAIRY’S KISS and PETRUSHKA, the production chronicles the story of a young woman (Mearns) and her dream of becoming a dancer. Entranced by the music, she is “kissed” by the passion to become an artist and drawn into the performance, dancing to the complete score of THE FAIRY’S KISS. By the second act, she has completed her transformation into an artist, becoming Columbine in PETRUSHKA.
Approximate running time is 1 hour and 55 minutes
