La Monnaie ¦ Dance ¦ Sacre ¦ Intro
Sasha Waltz & Guests
On 29th May, 1913, Le Sacre du printemps, composed by Igor Stravinsky for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and choreographed by Nijinsky, caused a scandal at its premiere in Paris. Since then this volcanic work has become ‘the 9th symphony of the 20th century’ and has inspired numerous choreographers. For the centenary of Le Sacre, Sasha Waltz will create for her dancers her version of the work.
