Day Three: Tuesday, May 20 - Ballets of Stravinsky/China Cabin/Jazz & the Pop ...
Note: The China Cabin is a 20 minute walk from the hotel on a flat, paved surface. The docent-led visit lasts an hour. You will then have two hours of free time before dinner to explore the town of Tiburon.

Breakfast: Breakfast in hotel

Morning: CLASS: Ballets of Stravinsky

In the early part of the 20th century, Stravinsky elevated ballet music to an unprecedented level in a manner similar to that in which Beethoven had elevated the symphony a century earlier. While Stravinsky’s ballets produced strong reactions (at times violent) among Parisian audiences at their premieres, they have grown to be regarded as masterpieces of both the ballet stage and the concert hall. Stravinsky’s contributions to the genre will be examined from his first ballet (The Firebird – 1910) to his final ballet (Agon – 1957).

Lunch: Lunch in hotel

Afternoon: EXCURSION: Docent-led visit of the China Cabin

The China Cabin is the Social Saloon from the S.S. China, a side-wheeled steamer built in 1866 by the William H. Webb shipyard in New York. Commissioned by the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, the China carried mail and passengers from its home port of San Francisco to Asia. The elegant room was salvaged when the ship became obsolete in 1879 and was burned for scrap metal in Tiburon Cove. The Landmarks Society has restored the interior with 22k gold leaf, walnut woodwork, cut-glass floral window panes, and brass chandeliers. The China Cabin was designated a National Maritime Monument in 1978. (Courtesy of the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society)
