The Rite of Spring - Richmond Ballet & Virginia Symphony Orchestra
One hundred years ago in Paris, the lights went up on the premiere performance of The Rite of Spring. In Stravinsky's music and Nijinsky's choreography, every note, every step cried out for revolution, and fist fights broke out between the staid symphony goers and fans of the avant-garde. Celebrate a masterpiece that changed music and dance forever, in this performance that unites the full Virginia Symphony Orchestra and Richmond Ballet. Opening the evening is another famous Stravinsky ballet, from his influential partnership with George Balanchine, Duo Concertante.
