The Rite of Spring with TSO

Beyond the Town Hall
ANAM work side by side with TSO

Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring arrived like a thunderclap in Paris in 1913, provoking a riot that has gone down in the annals of music history. Its pulsating rhythms, striking colours and brutal harmonies have lost none of their power to shock, but audiences today are more likely to be invigorated rather than outraged by the work’s seismic energy.
