Fun Facts

  • Inside the Classics features a pre-concert happy hour, local craft brews, and a chance to mingle with musicians onstage after the performance.
  • Petrushka is known for its “Petrushka chord” made of two simple major chords that few composers before Stravinsky had ever tried putting together at once, due to their unusual clashing sound (C and F-sharp major). They represent the character of Petrushka, especially at the end of the piece, when two trumpets play the chords together to represent Petrushka’s ghost harassing the Charlatan.
  • Petrushka was first performed by Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris on June 13, 1911, with the role of Petrushka played by the legendary dancer Vaslav Nijinsky.
