When Ballets Russes first performed The Rite of Spring in 1913 at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, the audience worked itself in an uproar during the premiere of Igor Stravinsky's complex composition. In hindsight, The Rite of Spring set the stage for early modernism with its primitivist music, choreography, and production design — all of which ignited the tensions in the already incendiary relationship between French bohemians and the well-to-do. But a hundred years after its debut, Stravinsky's vanguard masterpiece has proven itself to be one of the most important artistic achievements of the 20th century. One of the country's best ballet companies, the Joffrey Ballet celebrates the centennial of The Rite of Spring in the tenth season of Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Music Center.
