    Triumphant performance of Stravinsky's Le Sacre Du Printemps

    Life, Published on 01/09/2015

    » Igor Stravinsky was a young, virtually unknown composer when he was recruited by Sergei Diaghliev to create works for Diaghliev's Ballets Russe. Firebird and Petrushka were composed first and then the seminal Le Sacre Du Printemps. Subtitled "Pictures Of Pagan Russia", Le Sacre Du Printemps -- or The Rite Of Spring -- caused a scandal and a near-riot at the premiere on May 29, 1913. Almost as soon as the curtain rose, the audience began to react strongly to the performance, starting with whistles and proceeding to hisses and howls as the dancers appeared.
