Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony guide viewers through groundbreaking works that defined an era, and reveal the secrets of their continued emotional appeal today.

In 1913, with Europe on the brink of war, a fashionable Parisian audience reacted with hostile frenzy to the premiere of Igor Stravinsky's new work, The Rite of Spring. The ballet's shocking music and dance provoked a riot that evening and soon afterwards was recognized as perhaps the most revolutionary piece of the 20th century. It still has that reputation today.

In this DVD, Michael Tilson Thomas and the musicians of the San Francisco Symphony take you from the salons of St. Petersburg to the villages where Stravinsky found inspiration in the earthy power of Russian folk music and dance. MTT then retraces Stravinsky's journey to the cultural crossroads of per-war Paris. There, in collaboration with the great impresario Diaghilev and his star dancer Nijinsky, Stravinsky developed the shocking, erotic, and violent evocation of pagan Russia that became The Rite of Spring.

Features:
• Live Performance of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and music from The Firebird by the San Francisco Symphony and MTT shot in high definition, presented in 16:9 widescreen and 5.1 surround sound.

• Subtitles in English, German, French, Spanish and Chinese
