Marquee TV: Stravinsky’s Petrushka



  • Edward Gardner conductor

At a Shrovetide fair in old Russia, crowds bustle and laugh as they watch the puppets dance, love, fight and die. None of it really matters; they’re just toys – aren’t they?

Stravinsky’s Petrushka astonished audiences in 1911, and 112 years on its colours are as bright (and its emotions as strong) as ever. Edward Gardner pairs it with another Technicolor tale of magic with a mind of its own (think Disney’s Fantasia).

New release coming to Marquee TV on 9 December 2023. The concert will be free to stream for 48 hours and will then be added to the LPO catalogue, available to Marquee TV subscribers.

Sat 9 Dec 2023- Sun 1 Sep 2024
