A Dancerís Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky
Founded in 1842, the New York Philharmonic is the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States playing over 180 concerts per year, but this year they played one program which was unlike any before. In A Dancer’s Dream: Two Works by Stravinsky, Producers Giants Are Small and Music Director Alan Gilbert combined music, ballet, puppetry, video projection, and theater, bringing The Fairy’s Kiss and Petrushka both to life in one creative and fantastic event. Working behind the scenes, lighting designer Clifton Taylor was given the challenge to blend all these production elements seamlessly together and to help him accomplish this he put together a comprehensive lighting package from Philips Entertainment which included Showline SL BAR 640, Philips Selecon PLCyc LED, Philips Vari-Lite VL3500 Spot, VL1000 ERS and VL5B Wash luminaires.
