The Joffrey Ballet, one of the world’s finest dance companies and a leading artistic force since its founding in 1956, celebrates the 100th anniversary of dance’s most influential work, The Rite of Spring, with their groundbreaking recreation of the original Ballets Russes production. Igor Stravinsky’s score and Vaslav Nijinsky’s choreography for the 1913 Paris premiere sparked a riot that is said to have given birth to modern music and dance. It took over fifteen years of meticulous research to piece together original scores, paintings, reviews, notes and first-person accounts unearthing the alarming genius of the work.
