The Rite of Spring is a ballet and orchestral concert work by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. It was written for the 1913 Paris season of Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes company, with choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky and stage designs and costumes by Nicholas Roerich.

Movie by the BBC documents the debut of  Igor Stravinsky’s masterpiece. The music and choreography by Nijinsky were so far advanced for the time that the Parisian audience rioted in its inability to grasp the event.
