People punched each other at the premiere of the Rite of Spring. Maybe it was the primal, groin-thrusting immodesty of Nijinsky's choreography. But the raw, rhythmic violence of Stravinsky's score soon spilled over into the auditorium, inciting the detractors and defenders of this epoch-making music to blows. Stravinsky's ballet music was described by one contemporary critic as being like "Russian vodka with French perfumes". The description was more apt than he realised; among the baying, brawling crowd at the first performance of the Rite of Spring was Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel.

    Stravinsky accepts her offer? The movie ends with a poetic fizzle inbut the writing gives so little to the story that it's sad, portraying each of them in separate silent scenes. I decided to give the book a chance anyway. Get an immediate offer.

  3. Amarilla O. says:

    Stravinsky composed the music. Nicholas Roerich painted the sets and designed the costumes. And Vaslav Nijinsky was choreographer. The ballet represented a human sacrifice in pagan Russia to gain the favor of the god of spring. 🧞‍♂️
