To mark the 100th anniversary of the riotous premiere of The Rite of Spring, a whole day of events, culminating in an evening concert that recreates the explosive musical cocktail of that concert. Immerse yourself in the Parisian artistic world of 1913 with two retrospective films, Riot at the Rite and Ballet Russes, an intimate portrait of the surviving dancers in Diaghilev’s ground-breaking company. In the evening, Russian conductor Alexander Vedernikov leads the BBC Symphony Orchestra in a programme that places Stravinsky’s ballet in the context of the dance music tradition, including Borodin’s colourful Polovtsian Dances, Weber’s Invitation to the Dance and Stravinsky’s own orchestration of Chopin’s Grande valse brilliante.

The concert will finish at approximately 9.30pm
