Show Full Description

Pagan sacrifice! Dissonance! A riot! The premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s ballet The Rite of Spring by Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes on May 29, 1913, is perhaps the most famous onstage scandal in the history of the performing arts. Was the riot spontaneous or a planned anti-Russian protest? Were people arrested? Was someone actually challenged to a duel? Discover the true story behind the mythical performance with New Yorker writer and host Adam Gopnik and special guests, including dancer and the Founder/Director of The Center for Ballet and the Arts at NYU Jennifer Homans.

 

Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
