Event description

Description

Ballet-opera Liturgie was first conceived by Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes collaborators while carousing with the Italian Futurists and Igor Stravinsky in 1915. Financial considerations and Stravinsky's obstinance meant that Liturgie was never completed nor performed, and we must instead rely on the records that remain: a few photographs of the dancers in rehearsal, as well as extensive designs by Natalia Goncharova and a number of accounts of the work in correspondence and diaries.

Taking place a century after the project was conceived, Spectra Ensemble’s production - a work in progress - combines original costume and set designs drawn from Natalia Goncharova's plans with new music by Daniel Lee Chappell and new choreography by Camille Jetzer.
