The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Presents THE RITE OF SPRING, 4/24
by BWW News Desk - Apr 11, 2014

The CSO presents its premier of Igor Stravinsky's monumental work The Rite of Spring on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 7:30pm at the Tivoli Theatre. Originally premiered in Paris at the The?a?tre des Champs-E?lyse?es on May 29, 1913 as Le Sacre du Printemps, this avant-garde ballet was received with an outbreak of riots and hysteria. The score was ground-breaking with its new uses of meter, tonality, rhythm, and dissonance creating a new abrasive orchestral sound. Stravinsky described the piece as "a musical-choreographic work, [representing] pagan Russia ... unified by a single idea: the mystery and great surge of the creative power of Spring'. Over time, The Rite of Spring has become widely viewed as the single most important piece of 20th century symphonic literature that ushered in a new era of musical composition. (more...)
