Description


For more than seven decades historians have regarded Le Sacre du Printemps as the lost masterpiece of 20th-century choreography. Despite this reputation, until now no attempt was made to reconstruct the original dance, either during the lifetime of the choreographer or those of his collaborators... In his "crime against grace," Nijinsky stepped beyond the limits of classical tradition and identified himself with the concept of the modern artist as the deviant, always outside society. The price he paid for that persona was much higher than for most artists. The reasons why and how he bore the price helped explain why and how his masterpiece got lost. They also provided clues for how to find it." From the Preface Using a facsimile of the rehearsal piano score, Millicent Hodson relates steps and spatial figures to musical phrases indicating in detail the sources for her reconstruction.
