You wouldn't do that, would you? But what if you had been at the 1913 premier of Igor Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring) - do you think you would have been well-behaved then?

I suppose I should have saved this post for May 29, the centennial of that fateful day, but I photographed the berries today, so here they are. Also, I performed Rite of Spring last week, and besides, virtual fruit is timeless.
(If you attended any of the three performances of the Rite by the North Carolina Symphony, I would love to see your comments below!)
