Storyline

In the spring of 1913, Parisian businessman Gabriel Astruc opens a new theater on the Champs Elysées. The first performance is the premiere of Igor Stravinsky's 'The Rite of Spring', danced by the Ballet Russes. The rehearsal process is extremely fraught: the orchestra dislike Stravinsky's harsh, atonal music; the dancers dislike the 'ugly' choreography of Vaslav Nijinsky. The volatile, bisexual Nijinsky is in a strained relationship with the much older Sergei Diaghilev, the Ballet Russes' charismatic but manipulative impresario. Public expectation is extremely high after Nijinsky's success in 'L'apres-midi d'un faune'. Finally, 'The Rite of Spring' premieres to a gossip-loving, febrile, fashion-conscious Parisian audience sharply divided as to its merits. Written by Peter Brynmor Roberts

Lovely
12 March 2006 | by (Netherlands/UK) – See all my reviews

I fell into this on BBC-2 while channel-hopping. Absolutely fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable. Maybe the drama was the usual period stuff but with the story of the creation, rehearsal and performance of the Right of Spring, it was captivating. A really class production with the Finnish National Ballet with Zenaida Yanowsky and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. We see the tensions between the dancer (Najinsky) and composer (Stravinsky) during the creation. Tension gives way to excitement and confidence during rehearsals. And then bafflement at the public reaction. Always the way with the new? Definitely worth watching for the music and dance.
