Stravinsky's Rite of Spring

  • Aired: 10/14/2009
  • 55:37
  • Rating: TV-G
Savage and primitive, hypnotic and hell-bent, Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring turned Paris into the scene of one of the most astounding opening nights in history. In this episode of Keeping Score, the clutching tendrils of the music pull us back through France and Russia to the wild abandon of pagan times.
