13 Days When Music Changed Forever - Program 09:<br>May 29, 1913: Premiere of "The Rite of Spring"

The premiere of the ballet, “The Rite of Spring.” Stravinsky’s completely original instrumentation, rhythms, and his use of dissonance, have made this work one of the most important of the 20th century, not to mention the riot and ensuing scandal that caused this premiere in Paris to be one of the most shocking in all of performance history.
