View Full Version : 1913, why did they Riot at Stravinsky?

Igor Stravinsky, a Russian Composer created a Ballet called The Rite of Spring. Its performance was so..raw and almost suggestive, that it caused a riot.

I love the unusual music, but only today for the first time have I seen a version of the ballet...it seems so innocent until the introduction of both male and female, and by 6mins...its very strange...I could see why it might have upset people going to see the Ballet in 1913


If you went to see something like swan lake and saw that instead, you too might be a bit shocked.

If I had to go to a ballet, I'd probably riot as well.
