Programme

Rite of Spring

Stravinsky takes musical conventions of the time and turns them on their head in this musical depiction of a controversial Pagan ritual: Set in prehistoric Russia the elders force a sacrificial virgin to dance herself to death. Causing riots and walk-outs at its premiere in Paris the Rite of Spring is an exciting, revolutionary and unsettling work that shows Stravinsky’s rebellious nature to its fullest.
