From today's featured article (Wikipedia):

Image

The Rite of Spring is a ballet and orchestral concert work by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. It was written for the 1913 Paris season of Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes company, with choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky and stage designs and costumes by Nicholas Roerich (pictured). The ballet caused a near-riot in the audience when first performed, on 29 May 1913 at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, but rapidly achieved success as a concert piece and later became recognised as one of the most influential musical works of the 20th century. The score has many novel features, including experiments in tonality, metre, rhythm, stress and dissonance. The scenario is the celebration of spring by various primitive rituals, at the end of which a sacrificial victim dances herself to death. After its explosive premiere the ballet was not performed until the 1920s, when Léonide Massine's rechoreographed version was the first of many innovative productions directed by the world's leading ballet-masters. Providing "endless stimulation for performers and listeners" alike, The Rite is among the most recorded works in the classical repertoire.

Ballet - Stravinsky Le Sacre du Printemps - Pierre Boulez, Orchestre de Paris 2002
with real horses!

german french television channel arte also just did broadcast the piece live from the same theatre in Paris where it premiered 100 years ago. They did it two times. The first time they tried to reconstruct the original 1913 choreographie from Nijinsky: http://videos.arte.tv/de/videos/gala-100-jahre-sacre-du-printemps-1-3--7525222.html
The second time they did a modern choreographie from german choreographer Sasha Waltz. It is not yet online, cause it just happened.
edit: 2nd version online now:http://videos.arte.tv/de/videos/gala-100-jahre-sacre-du-printemps-3-3--7525228.htmlno horses!

That animation in the lead post is fucking amazing. It helps you to concentrate on hearing everything that's being played.

Rite of Spring, one of the great pieces of musical art of the 20th Century.

Part 1 of a reconstruction of the original Nijinsky ballet. It has been suggested by researchers in the world of dancing, that it wasn't the music that caused the riot, but the choreography. Unlike what was normal in ballet at the time, the dancers keep their knees turned inward during the dancing. This causes them to land loudly after jumping.

I have a theory that I have not heard expressed by anyone. I'd like to share it now:

I think the people were just waiting for an excuse to riot. There's a lot of pent up fury and anguish in the hearts and minds of your typical ballet audience.
