12:00 AM. Music Through the Night

The Rite of Spring - The 100 Year Shock-Wave

Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring is still provocative and disturbing a century after its première caused one of the most sensational scandals in artistic history. In this anniversary documentary, the ballet's 100 year shock-wave is traced from its initial explosion on May 29th 1913 right up to the present time. First-hand recollections of the famous first night from Dame Marie Rambert, who was one of the dancers, and Igor Stravinsky, who was in the audience, lead through to comments on the work's enduring power from performers of recent times: dancers Dame Monica Mason and Deborah Bull, choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot, and conductors Valery Gergiev, the late Sir Colin Davis, and Bernard Keeffe, as well as dance re-constructionist Millicent Hodson and musicologist and historian Geoffrey Norris. Narrated and produced by Jon Tolansky (RNZ/WFMT)
