The Rite of Spring
Following the Shakespeare / Purcell trilogy (presented between 2010 and 2019), Teatro Praga returns to the big stage, in partnership with Metropolitana, to present The Rite of Spring, a ballet by Stravinsky, originally choreographed by Nijinsky. Understanding this work as a milestone in the history of the performing arts, and taking into account its symbolic weight, The Rite of Spring at Teatro Praga follows the desire to bring history to the stage and understand how it reverberates in contemporary times. A celebration of the planet and place we inhabit, which degenerates into a sacrificial ritual, will serve as a guiding thread for thinking about the inextricable mixture of existence, privileging a history of mutual influences. The force of life, of spring, is also the force of abandonment and abdication of all kinds of bodies.
