Blending music with dance, live animation, pre-recorded video, puppetry, and circus arts, A Dancerâ€™s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky blurs the lines between reality and imagination, audience and performer. Using Stravinsky's The Fairyâ€™s Kiss and Petruskha as the foundation for a new narrative, this one-of-a-kind production from the New York Philharmonic chronicles the story of a young woman (played by Sara 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 Fairyâ€™s Kiss. By the second act, she has completed her transformation into an artist, becoming Columbine in Petruskha. Captured live at Lincoln Centerâ€™s Avery Fisher Hall June 27-19, 2013, and featuring a voice-over introduction by award-winning actor Alec Baldwin, A Dancerâ€™s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky is a thrillingly unique performance/cinematic experience not to be missed.
