L’APRÈS-MIDI D’UN FAUNE / SCÈNE D’AMOUR / LE SACRE DU PRINTEMPS
Claude Debussy, Hector Berlioz, Igor Strawinsky
with Sasha Waltz & Guests
Stravinsky’s »Le sacre du printemps«, however, was far more spectacular than this artful but rather fragile composition: its Paris debut in May 1913, realised by the legendary ensemble of the Ballets Russes, created a veritable theatre scandal. The unleashed power of the rhythmic, both in music and in dance, bothered quite a few people, as did the intensity of the sounds generated by the gigantic orchestral apparatus. Nonetheless, the audience became witnesses to the birth of a truly »New Music«, which has since repeatedly shown its vitality. First performed exactly a century after the world premiere, Sasha Waltz’s choreography of Stravinsky’s exceptional piece has an impressive elementary impact and elementary expressiveness of dance.
