Jump for Joy: “The Rite of Spring”

Basil Twist brings out the wonder of childhood with his interpretation of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. Presented as part of this year’s Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival, Mr. Twist’s production was a wonder and a joy to see.

It was limited engagement, sadly. Now the only way to experience it is by way of still photography. To see more photos from this fabulously fun-filled presentation of a modern classic at the White Light Festival’s Facebook page, click on the photo above.
