Janni Younge, Creator
|Britten:||Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes, Op. 33a|
|Stravinsky:||The Firebird [Created by Janni Younge of Handspring Puppet Company] (Midwest premiere)|
"Inspired by the profoundly moving music of Stravinsky's Firebird, the visual performance evokes the conflict of innocence, passion, and creativity versus doubt, defense, and anger. Ultimately the marriage of these opposing forces results in a creation of magnificent power, a creature animated by the 15 dancers and puppeteers working in unision to give it life."—Janni Younge Handspring Puppet Company
