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. Using Stravinsky’s The Fairy’s Kiss and Petrushka as the foundation for a new narrative, the production chronicles the story of a young woman 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. This multi–faceted cinema event also features behind the scenes footage and never before seen materials from the New York Philharmonic Digital Archives.
Tickets are $20, available in advance at the box office and online.
