3 great Stravinsky ballets at SSO, June 19 and 21

Seattle Symphony offers a rare opportunity to hear all three of Igor Stravinksy’s great ballet scores in one evening: “Firebird,” “Petrushka” and “The Rite of Spring,” in concert on June 19 and 21.

It was a legendary collaboration, but they could not have known it then: a young composer named Igor Stravinsky (shown here, in 1952) was hired by the impresario Sergei Diaghilev, founder of the famed dance company Ballet Russes, to compose music for him a century ago. “The Firebird” (1910); “Petrushka” (1911); and “The Rite of Spring” (1913) followed, and composition and dance were never the same. The Seattle Symphony and music director Ludovic Morlot offer a rare chance to hear all three works in one evening, sure to appeal to fans of music and movement. 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 19, and 8 p.m. Saturday, June 21. Benaroya Hall, Seattle; tickets start at $19 (206-215-4747 or seattlesymphony.org). The orchestra presents “Stravinsky: Untuxed,” featuring just “Firebird” at 7 p.m. Friday, June 20 (tickets start at $17).
