It’s perhaps the most influential ballet ever performed. A hundred years ago, “The Rite of Spring” was first staged. The Igor Stravinsky composition redefined dance and sparked a revolution in music that still influences composers…whether classical or not. Joseph Allison is a music historian at Eastern Kentucky University, a big fan of Stravinsky and completely enamored with “The Rite of Spring.”
Saturday evening inside the Lexington Opera House, “The Rite of Spring” is performed by the Lexington Ballet.
