Calling all budding illustrators!
During the LSO’s performance of 'The Infernal Dance' from The Firebird, we are planning to project images above the orchestra on the Barbican Stage which describe the story and Stravinsky’s wonderful music. We would like you to draw these pictures for us! Listen to the music (click on the 'Audio & Video' tab), read the story here and let your imagination run wild. Then come and spot your picture in the concert!
Once you have drawn your picture please either email or post it to:
