Led by its artistic director and chief conductor Valery Gergiev, the orchestra will first perform in the 'Stravinsky's Portrait’ gala in Monaco to mark the centenary of the composer's The Rite of Spring ballet.
Then the company will be touring France, Switzerland and Italy to give the closing performance at the Santa Cecilia Concert Hall in Rome on April 12.
