The Rite of Spring and Rosa
Beautiful spring day
It is a quiet morning in the sunshine, little lives make all kinds of noises, seeds sprouts, and animals leave their hole cautiously…Young girls dance the Khorovod, the "Spring Rounds".
The Rite of Spring is a ballet and orchestral concert work by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, which has two parts, Part I: Adoration of the Earth and Part II: The Sacrifice.

According to Stravinsky,” the scenario depicts various primitive rituals celebrating the advent of spring, after which a young girl is chosen as a sacrificial victim and dances herself to death”. Eventually, the concert has many novel features for its time, including experiments in rhythm and dancing.
For decades, “The Rite of Spring” inspired choreographers including Pina Bausch and Lin Hwai-min. People find a place to reveal madness, interpreting all kinds of despair, crazy, and rebirth. In spring, anything is possible.
