Default 100 years ago in Paris...

Vaslav Nijinsky and Igor Stravinsky revealed to the public their "crime against beauty," Le Sacre du Printemps.



Nijinsky's choreography, Stravinsky's music, Roerich's sets & costumes design,


It was not received well. Yet, in ballet and in concert, this work has become one of the most influential.

Disney battered it beyond belief in his dinosaur vision in Fantasia, yet it withstood even that.

Nijinksky's choreography was thought lost, but from a thought-lost-but-recovered notation of parts of the dance, the memories of a few remaining dancers, and thorough scholarship by Millicent Hodson, the Joffrey Ballet reconstructed the entire production that the Paris audience found so upsetting.

Yes yesterday, the Theatre des Champs-Elysees was full with ministers, the first lady and many notables in evening dress. The "Tout Paris" as a century ago. It gave the same program as 29 May 1913 but the outcome was very different. no screaming or insults, no exchange of blows, or ladies of the world trying to pull the folding seats.

The creation of the Rite of Spring in 1913 by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes remains one of the biggest scandals in the history of art . Too modern, too bold in the music of Igor Stravinsky and the dance, created by Vaslav Nijinsky. The ballet was given six times before being lost.

Le style n’est pas une question de technique mais de vision. »

Why Proust always wrote long sentences? Some say it is because it lacked breath and writing corrected or revenge his asthma, but it is not true, it is because of the little phrase of Vinteuil!

And they are still arguing about it. He had a habit of not always being literal.

This user agrees. But then, who wouldn't, right?
