National Ballet of Canada's "Nijinsky"

Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" debuted in Paris a century ago this spring -- a performance that famously provoked yelling, booing and fighting in the audience. To mark the anniversary, the National Ballet of Canada is now staging a production not of "The Rite of Spring" -- but one that tells the story of its choreographer, Vaslav Nijinsky. Guillaume Cote is dancing the title role in "Nijinsky".
