Britt Orchestra: Rite of Spring


NPR’s Performance Today says of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, “Almost no musical work has had such a powerful influence or evoked as much controversy.” When it premiered in 1913, with its primitive and dissonant music, unusual ballet choreography, and Russian pagan setting, it was met with derision and riots. The orchestral work, however, has stood the test of time, and its premiere is often called one of the greatest moments in Western Art. This will be the first-ever Britt performance of the great work.
