A Night at the Opera Chelsea DeBaise

A mere moment in time can seem so small, so trivial—but it can have such a powerful impact. The lives of Igor Stravinsky and Petyr Tchaikovsky, two giants in the world of classical composition, seem barely related. Yet a look back in history can shine light on one small instance in Stravinsky’s childhood when the two shared a glance at an Opera House before Tchaikovsky’s untimely death. The significance that these several seconds had proves the volume of power that just a moment can have. Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky’s music will be the tools to tell this unusual story. LISTEN
