Today we have conductor Scott Speck with us to talk about the music for the Joffrey's upcoming Russian Masters program. The company will perform Nijinsky's "Le Sacre du Printemps," or "The Rite of Spring," with music by Stravinsky.
Turns out that Cusack, who ports a strong intellectual bent, is a huge "Rite of Spring" guy. Loving the music and fascinated by the 1913 Stravinsky riots, he ventured to Bunker Hill to see the performance.
