Stravinsky's in may 24th and 25th
This year marks the centennial of the premiere of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. Never in the history of Western music has a premiere caused as much furore as this one, held at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées on 29 May 1913. The music and the choreography so affected the audience that the police were needed to pacify the crowd.
