Dudamel & Bolle

Walt Disney Concert Hall

Los Angeles, CA 90012


The commission for Stravinskys ballet Apollo came from the Library of Congress for a contemporary music festival in 1928. Adolph Bolm choreographed that world premiere, but Stravinsky had reserved the European rights for Serge Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes, whose version opened in Paris six weeks later. George Balanchine staged that performance, and his choreography quickly became a classic, though he made significant changes in it during more than 50 years of productions. (It was Balanchine who shortened the original title, Apollo musagte, in the 1950s.) Come for: In a co-production with American Ballet Theatre (celebrating its 75th anniversary), ABT Principal Dancer and international star Roberto Bolle joins Dudamel and the Phil to dance to Stravinskys exquisite score, based on the grand tradition of French 17th- and 18th-century music. And more: The inexorable drive of Shostakovichs Fifth brings the program to a delirious climax.
