Just a little background for your information about Rite of Spring, music by Igor Stravinsky
On May 29, 1913, in Paris, Les Ballets Russes stages the first ballet performance of The Rite of Spring (Le Sacré du Printemps,) with music by Igor Stravinsky and choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky.

The unrest in the audience escalates into a riot..
