Show Overview

The premiere at the Théâtre des Champs Élysées in Paris on 29 May 1913 of The Rite of Spring Scenes from Pagan Russia was a quintessential ‘total work of art’. An interdisciplinary, international one-day conference was organized by Dr Claire O’Mahony (University of Oxford) in May 2013 which examined the cross-fertilizations between ballet and design in the creation of the original production as well its critical reception and global legacies up to the 2013 centenary productions. Fifteen scholars from universities around the globe investigated both the continuity and ruptures with the traditions of choreographic, visual, musical and literary cultures it provoked. Most of them agreed to have podcasts recorded which form this series.
