Ravel’s Boléro is one of the most familiar pieces in all of music. But how much do we really know about it? In this musical detective story, Stutzmann embarks on a personal quest to find out what lies at the heart of Ravel’s hypnotic masterpiece. Filmed at breathtaking French locations, her journey culminates with the preparation and performance of a dramatically lit performance of Boléro with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, incorporating new discoveries about the work.
“A fascinating re-evaluation of Ravel’s most enduring work, and a visually sumptuous trek to Stutzmann’s native France as she delves into the composition’s remarkable background.” –Jordan Owen, ArtsATL
