An epic journey of struggle and sacrifice.

 

Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe, Juilliard alumni and Billboard chart-topping pianists, tread uncharted territory with their cinematic reimagining of one of history's most monumental compositions. The Rite of Spring: A Musical Odyssey fuses a ferocious dueling piano performance with an epic tale of soul-searching and survival, culminating in the sacrificial destruction of a 140-year-old organ.

The DVD includes the complete film in addition to "Chronicles of the Rite," a 30-minute documentary featuring interviews with Anderson & Roe and behind-the-scenes footage.
