The Rite of Spring was a ballet that was and still is way ahead of it's time. Three people responsible for this creation...Nijinsky, Stravinsky, and Diaghalev... the choreographer, writer, and producer. This is a film dramatizing the historical event when the ballet premiered in Paris and was not well received by an audience full of Parisians. Some broke into fights, some started a riot, some made cat calls, some laughed, some booed all the way through....but it was what Stravinsky wanted to happen. He wanted it to be an impact.
