Igor Stravinsky composed wildly popular music. Vaslav Nijinsky’s dance was celebrated far and wide. But both dreamed of creating art that was different and new. When they met, their dream came true.
The Rite of Spring was so original it inspired an unforgettable response. The audience at the premiere couldn’t agree: the performance was either brilliant or a disaster. But did it really cause them to fight in the aisles? Could a ballet provoke a riot? Stravinsky and Nijinsky’s did.
