Le Sacre du Printemps
May 29, 1913 saw the premiere of this work that would mark the end of dance of the Belle Epoque and the beginning of the modern era. This Nijinsky piece would only have 9 performances before disappearing from the Ballet Russes repertoire, to be reconstituted in 1920 with choreography by Massine. In 1987, the Joffrey Ballet reconstructed this work and it remains in their repertoire at regular intervals.

Nicholas Roerich was the prime mover and, with Igor Stravinsky, the co-creator of the ballet Le Sacre du Printemps, or The Rite of Spring. At first entitled The Great Sacrifice: a Tableau of Pagan Russia, the motif for the ballet grew out of Roerich's absorption with antiquity.

"From the first notes of the overture, sounded by a bassoon playing well outside its normal register, Stravinsky's haunting music set the audience on edge. It was the combination of that music with the jarring choreography of the great Vaslav Nijinsky, however, that caused the uproar that followed"

"Where painting has Picasso and poetry has T.S. Eliot, music has Stravinsky. Le Sacre is not merely a caricature of primitive man; it is also an evocation of modern impulse, an episode in the hysterical, disordered mindset of human beings."

The Rite of Spring was composed between 1912 and 1913 for Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. After undergoing revisions almost up until the very day of its first performance, the ballet was premièred by the Ballets Russes on Thursday, 29 May 1913 at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, conducted by Pierre Monteux.

The premiere of Le sacre du printemps by Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes has become the stuff of legends, First produced at The Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris seems almost one hundred years ago, on May 29th, 1913.
Versions differ on the origin of the concept for The Rite of Spring. Stravinsky later in life said that it came to him in a dream. But contemporary sources support that the idea originated with the Russian philosopher and painter Nicholas Roerich. Roerich shared his idea with Stravinsky in 1910, a fleeting vision of a pagan ritual in which a young girl dances herself to death.

Diaghilev assigned the choreography of the ballet to Vaslav Nijinsky, the company's leading male dancer. Nijinsky conceived of a completely original dance style for the ballet that emphasized earthy staccato movements with feet turned inward. It was a radical departure from ballet as it was known at the time.

Vaslav Nijinsky – ballet dancer and choreographer
Apart from being an extremely athletic dancer, he branched out to choreographing innovative & evocative ballets with composers like Igor Stravinsky & Claude Debussy.
Vaslav Nijinsky (1890-1950) was cited as the the greatest male dancer of the early 20th century. In 1909, he joined the Ballets Russes. The Ballet Russes gave Nijinsky the chance to expand his art and experiment with dance and choreography; he created new directions for male dancers while becoming internationally famous.
Stravinsky writes, "... there arose a picture of a sacred pagan ritual: the wise elders are seated in a circle and are observing the dance before death of the girl whom they are offering as a sacrifice to the god of Spring in order to gain his benevolence. This became the subject of The Rite of Spring."
