After purchasing and listening to two pieces of music that were ballets- Rite of Spring and The Perfect Fool by Holst, it occured to me that, while we listen to them as concert pieces, people actually had to dance to them, once. Yes, this point is obvious, but I never really thought about it. I mean, this is some weird-ass music- uneven rhythms, banging and clanging all over the place- how the heck does one dance to this? I'm aware of the infamous riot that happened after Rite of Spring was performed. I guess those folks had the same questions, but they were a little less cool about it. Has anyone ever actually seen this kind of thing performed? I am curious to hear impressions.
