Around a hundred DC denizens decked in period costume came together for “A Stravinsky Mindfuck,” celebrating the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring,” the most infamous concert of the 20th century.

Anchored by a presentation by musicologist Jason McCool, the party also featured raucous audience participation led by Mary-Alice Farina, 1913-era cocktails by Amy Morse, and Katie Chambers’ gorgeous cello on the roof deck.

More classical-themed parties are in the works! Check out videos explaining the history of “The Rite of Spring” and a riotous, plus more photos, below:
