‘I had a vision of a puppet, suddenly endowed with life,’ Stravinsky said of the work that would become one of his greatest successes. In this vividly rendered ballet of a puppet with a soul and his fantastic adventures, Tchaikovsky looks back to the music of his idol, Mozart, and pays homage to the classical spirit.

Pre-concert talk
Gillian Howell will lead young musicians of the MSO ArtPlay program in the performance of an exciting new Stravinsky-based composition.
