In another associated project, Panorama 2013 joins forces with Theatro Municipal do Rio de Janeiro for two evenings of celebrating the hundredth anniversary of The Rite of Spring. On the October 29 and 30 sessions, those who present the ticket to any of the Panorama 2013 shows will pay only R$ 20 (R$ 10 half price) for the ticket at the current Municipal season. The initiative is part of a series of tributes to Nijinsky’s piece on this edition of the Festival.

Vaslav Nijinsky’s historic and revolutionary piece, with music by Igor Stravinsky, gets a new rendition for ballet by American choreographer Millicent Hodson, conducted by Argentinean conductor Javier Logioia Orbe. The program with eight sessions between October 19 and 30 is completed by L’après-midi d’un faune, with Nijinsky’s original choreogra­phy and music by Claude Debussy, and Le spectre de la rose, by Michel Fokine, with music by Carl Maria Von Weber, both restaged by Tatiana Leskova. This is a chance for Rio’s public to get to know a classic staging of the masterpiece.
