Stories from around the world are at the heart of tonight's concert of lost letters, fairy tales and Stravinsky's high-voltage Symphony in Three Movements.
Stories from around the world are at the heart of tonight's concert - a neoclassical ballet based on the Commedia del'Arte character of Pulcinella, the tale of letters found in an abandoned watchtower after 1600 years, Ravel's orchestration of the collection of fairy tales he wrote as a children's piano duet and Stravinsky's response to his impressions of World War II.
