Ep. 37: A Sad Shrovetide - Stravinsky and Petrushka

Petrushka, Igor Stavinksy's second ballet, is a tragic tale of a living puppet who is treated like a mere toy and brought to the point of madness. Ironically, such a sad tale brought Stravinsky a great deal of success, especially after the triumph that was his previous ballet The Firebird. However, there's more you do not know, hidden behind the curtain.
