Youth Spirit | Fire and Water: Génial!

* in French only
Presented by Télé-Québec

Dear teachers, you are invited to the Maison symphonique on March 24, 2020 to join the Orchestre Métropolitain’s musicians, conductor Nicolas Ellis and scientist Martin Carli for a school matinee performance of Fire and Water: Génial!

You find a long feather, bright as fire, in the middle of the forest. Where did it come from? Why did it fall? What enchanting animal will you meet? Russians view The Firebird as both benevolent and destructive, comforting and frightening, much like fire itself. The orchestral suite based on Stravinsky’s ballet captures the character’s ambiguity with dazzlingly acrobatic music. But before you can tame the fire, you have to face the music and get your feet a little wet! Then, embark on the changing waters of Smetana’s Vltava!

The school matinées are for preschool and elementary school students.

Preparatory learning material will be available at least one month before the performance date.
