Götaplatsen will be occupied by GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, Scandinavia's largest dance company and one of Europe's foremost modern companies. Last spring, critics and audiences alike were jubilant over their performance of Marie Chouinard's The Rite of Spring, with choreography as revolutionary as Stravinsky's music was. Now they'll perform the piece once again - this time under the open sky.
The Rite of Spring is about 30 minutes long.
Choreography: Marie Chouinard
Musik (recorded): Igor Stravinsky
