Yekaterinburg Theater to debut multi-disciplinary dance revue

The Yekaterinburg Opera and Ballet Theater will open Dance Platform this Sunday at 6 p.m. local time.

The multi-disciplinary dance revue will consist of variations on themes of Rokoko, Eventual Progress and Cantus Articus.

Written in 1972, Cantus Articus is an orchestral composition by Einojuhani Rautavaara, a Finnish composer. Largely regarded as Rautavaara's most popular work, the composition incorporates audio recordings of bird songs recorded near the Arctic Circle in Finland.
