The Academy 2012

"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!
Favorite Shows 2016:

"This union may never be perfect, but generation after generation has shown that it can always be perfected. And today, whenever I find myself feeling doubtful or cynical about this possibility, what gives me the most hope is the next generation." - -

Although I no longer have the strong, personal connection to Academy, that I had last year...... I am a huge fan for life. I loved their (Re) show last summer, (the ballad still gives me chills), and I am so excited to see what they offer this summer! Best of luck to you all at Academy!!
For real. So many great hornlines in the 13-17 range last year. Academy is due for a break out performance sometime soon. Looking forward to this show!

Fantasy, abandoned by reason, produces impossible monsters; united with it, she is the mother of the arts and the origin of marvels.
--Francisco de Goya
You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.
