Stravinsky The Rite of Spring

Masterworks Series >

With howling harmonies, gut-punching rhythms and a prehistoric plot that builds to the pagan sacrifice of a virgin dancing herself to death, it’s no wonder that Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring set off a riot at its first performance. Thomas Dausgaard, leading an oversized orchestra, lets loose all the physicality and wild abandon embedded in this earthshaking ballet.

Casa Patas Flamenco: Raíz de 4

Live at Benaroya Hall >

Marisa Adame, director/choreographer/dancer
Rafael Peral, director/choreographer/dancer
José Almarcha, guitar
Epi Pacheco, percussion
Trini de la Isla, singer
José El Calli, singer


Perennial flamenco favorites Casa Patas return to Benaroya Hall with their newest show, Raíz de 4, created by and starring Rafael Peral and Marisa Adame. Raíz de 4 was born out of the admiration and esteem for flamenco by delving into its most primitive roots — those very origins which evoke the convergence of cultures and the folklore of Spain. The purest styles of flamenco — romances (ballads), martinetes, fandangos and soleares — are brought into the forefront in a performance made up of a cast of distinguished artists. Song (cante), dance (baile), guitar (guitarra) and percussion (percusión) come together on stage in a most natural fashion, while they convey a genuine love for this art form and take the audience on a simple and unswerving journey of feelings, sensations and emotions.
