His premiere of The Firebird on June 25th, 1910 spiked his fame and he became internationally renowned. He composed the extremely famous Petrouchka, which was a folk inspired ballet, and he then composed his most famous piece, The Rite of Spring.
The Rite of Spring is a ballet and orchestral concert piece that was composed by Igor Stravinsky. When the ballet was first performed on 29 May 1913, the nature of the music caused a near riot in the audience. Although designed as a piece for the stage, it was changed in order to accompany characters and action, and later on the music achieved growing success as a concert piece and then became recognised as one of the most amazing musical works of the 20th century.
