Le Sacre du printemps, Igor Stravinsky

I was obsessed with The Rite of Spring for about a week straight.

For you. Two versions, both incredible.

The Joffrey Ballet performance with original choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky. This was broadcasted on PBS back in its golden days, which might just mean the days when I used to watch PBS after school for hours with my grandma. My favorite part begins at 7:30.

Performance by an unnamed group in 1970 with choreography by Maurice Béjart. My favorites are part 2/4 mostly and the segment that begins at 2:14 in part 4/4.
