Description One hundred years after Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring caused a near riot in Paris, Brisbane Festival presents a double bill of Stravinsky's finest works. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre Artistic Director Michael Keegan-Dolan reimagines his 2009 Olivier-nominated version and brings to life a new interpretation of Petrushka.

Performed by exquisite dancers, both pieces create an intoxicating night of dance theatre that honours the searing modernity of Stravinsky’s music.

The music for the piece will be played by two people on one grand piano in a special arrangement, devised by Stravi
