BPOnDemand | Bizet’s Carmen Suite

This performance replaces Pétrouchka, originally scheduled Friday, May 14, and Saturday, May 15.

Vaughan Williams’ popular and incandescent treatment of an ethereal 16th-century Renaissance chant is paired with the contemporary reworking of an iconic masterpiece using primarily strings and percussion. Shchedrin’s Carmen Suite, created for the Russian composer’s prima ballerina wife, was initially banned in the Soviet Union for disrespecting Bizet’s opera.
