Stravinsky's revolutionary Rite of Spring debuted 100 years ago.
The Rite of Spring
The 79th Season comes to a thrilling close with John Adams' Harmonium, a visionary choral setting of poems by John Donne and Emily Dickinson. Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, radical for its time, is as powerful and relevant today as when it premiered one hundred years ago.
