The OSM launches its 85th season with two of its signature works: Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and Ravel’s Boléro. Alongside the dazzling percussive rhythms of these two masterpieces, the OSM presents Chaakapesh, The Trickster’s Quest, a new chamber opera based on Cree legend. Ritual, dance, and an ode to the Earth!
