Prepare to be blown away! When The Rite of Spring was premiered in 1913 it caused a riot. We’d rather you didn’t rip the chairs out today, but there’s no question – with Thomas Søndergård conducting – Stravinsky’s revolutionary ballet still packs an unforgettable punch. With a subversive new showpiece from Glasgow’s own David Fennessy and the astounding young American violinist Stefan Jackiw exploring Britten’s brooding Violin Concerto, join us as our new Season gets off to an explosive start.

David Fennessy's The Riot Act is supported by the Fidelio Charitable Trust.
