The Academy 2012 Left of Spring

"Left of Spring: Stravinsky Revisited"
- Rite of Spring - Igor Stravinsky
- Epilogue from the Broadway show "Spring Awakening"
- The Song of Purple Summer
What jumped out at me:
"Following the basic story line of the ballet, pagan rituals and images have been re-imagined to create a modern urban tribe. From the birth of the urban tribe, to the celebration of new life and the arrival of spring, the passionate ritual that sparks a riot, and finally the death and sacrifice of the chosen one."
This sounds like it's going to be a blast of a show, can't wait to see it!

"How selfish soever man may be supposed, there are evidently some principles in his nature, which interest him in the fortune of others, and render their happiness necessary to him, though he derives nothing from it except the pleasure of seeing it." - - Adam Smith, The Theory of Moral Sentiments
