 Thanx. I think this is probably from the last scene, in which the prettiest girl in an ancient Slavic village is given the assignment of dancing herself to death, to welcome in the springtime.

 Two other high-culture credits go to hjjr for reminding me that figures are best drawn from inside out (his Nureyev) and to artdillon for showing how concentrating on 'negative space' solves a lot of TD problems.

 And another credit to you-know-who for not telling me to stop this nonsense and get some sleep. Thanx again.

 I'm accustomed only to the old Diaghilev production, but this certainly expresses the power of Stravinsky's music.
