Brian Bell provides this tour of Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring", being performed on April 5-9, 2019. Igor Stravinsky's seminal ballet score "The Rite of Spring", which premiered in Paris in 1913, was given its American premiere by the BSO in 1924. Depicting an imagined ancient ritual re-awakening of the earth, the score still has the power to thrill and even shock the listener with its raw, protean power.
