Stravinsky The Rite of Spring

Synopsis

With howling harmonies, gut-punching rhythms and a prehistoric plot that builds to the pagan sacrifice of a virgin dancing herself to death, it’s no wonder that Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring set off a riot at its first performance. Thomas Dausgaard, leading an oversized orchestra, lets loose all the physicality and wild abandon embedded in this earthshaking ballet.
