Abstract

The Arts Initiative project At the turn of the twenty-first century, composer Stephen Hartkez and I re- ceived an Arts Initiative Grant to produce Igor Stravinsky's rarely performed ballet Svadebka (The Wedding; generally known by its French title Les No- ces). We had proposed a recreation of the 1923 Ballets Russes premiere in Paris at Le Theatre de la Gaite Lyrique. We staged a fully mounted produc- tion of two acts: the first, an original dramatic collage about the ballet's crea- tion and subject matter; the second, the ballet itself with choreography after Bronislava Nijinska and costumes after Natalia Goncharova (fig. 3). Our company performed at the Bing Theatre on the University of Southern Cali- fornia's campus in Los Angeles during February 2002. Our production, The Wedding, depended upon a large collaborative team. Stephen assembled Stravinsky's unusual ensemble: a chorus of twenty-five singers with four soloists and an orchestra of four pianists and six percussion- ists. The musicians were students at the USC Thornton School of Music. Wil- liam Dehning (Chair of the Choral and Sacred Music Department and con- ductor of the USC Thornton Chamber Choir) conducted.
