The premiere of The Rite of Spring at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris on 29 May 1913 provoked greater storms of controversy than any other work of ballet history and an opening night ‘riot’ which has become legendary. With a ground-breaking score by Igor Stravinsky and equally innovative choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky, Rite was the most significant declaration of Modernism to appear up to that time on the dance stage.
