    The Rite of Spring is a revolutionary work of Stravinsky and though it ended in a brawl it is a great creation for me.

    1. Agon - The most cyclic, varied and accomplished of his ballets
    2. Petrushka - The most musically varied, both whimsical and scary, and quite post-modern in many respects
    3. The Rite Of Spring - The most shocking (at the time) and still stirring works he wrote

    with (4.) Les Noces not far behind because of it's uncompromising mystical, ritualism.

    Well, unsurpassed if you pretend that Agon doesn't exist

    Agon for me, it makes the early ballets look stale in comparison (and the Rite of Spring used to be my favorite piece ever)

    They're dancing it brilliantly now (at NYCB). I've seen it three times.
