A new stamp from Monaco post celebrates 100 years of the creation of the Rite of Spring by composer Igor Stravinsky. The Rite of Spring is a ballet originally choreographed by Nijinsky for Serge de Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. Its first performance at the Theatre des Champs-Elysees in 1913 caused outrage due to its provocative choreography, the violence of the music and its strange costumes. Today, Stravinsky's score is considered as one of the major works of the 20th century and has inspired many choreographers such as Maurice Bejart and Pina Bausch.
