LE SACRE DU PRINTEMPS (THE REHEARSAL)

Opus Number:  72
Music:  Igor Stravinsky (arrangement for piano)
Set and Costumes:  John Rawlings
Lighting:  Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed:  January 15, 1980
Notes:  “It takes a genius to upstage another genius, and that’s just about what Paul Taylor accomplished in his deliciously berserk dance version of Igor Stravinsky’s hallowed, epoch-making score… Taylor uses this musical masterpiece as if it were simply a fiendishly interesting piece of music… in devising a dance charade of ever so brittle, arch and waspish humor.” – Alan M. Kriegsman, Washington Post
