(in German, free admission)


The lecture explores the history and afterlife of Le Sacre du printemps. With a view to Sacre 1913 and selected choreographic variants, it examines issues in the re-construction and the history of reception of this avantgarde masterwork. What relevance does Le Sacre have today?
