The Rite of Spring

The Rite of Spring is the last of the trilogy of orchestral ballets on Russian themes that Stravinsky composed for Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes. It depicts a solemn pagan rite: wise elders, seated in a circle, watching a young girl dance herself to death, sacrificing her to regain the favour of the god of spring
