Nijinsky’s daughter receives financial recognition for The Rite of Spring

Tamara Nijinsky, the 93-year-old daughter of Vaslav and Romola Nijinsky, is to receive legal recognition for her father’s celebrated ballet, The Rite of Spring, at the centenary performance in Paris this month.

A century of spring

The Rite of Spring had its infamous first performance on May 29, 1913, at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris. Igor Stravinsky’s music and Vaslav Nijinsky’s choreography (pictured) caused an outcry. A century on from that riotous evening, The Rite of Spring will be celebrated around the world, with ballets, concerts, education projects and more.
