I fell into this on BBC-2 while channel-hopping. Absolutely fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable. Maybe the drama was the usual period stuff but with the story of the creation, rehearsal and performance of the Right of Spring, it was captivating. A really class production with the Finnish National Ballet with Zenaida Yanowsky and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. We see the tensions between the dancer (Najinsky) and composer (Stravinsky) during the creation. Tension gives way to excitement and confidence during rehearsals. And then bafflement at the public reaction. Always the way with the new? Definitely worth watching for the music and dance.
