Rite of Spring anniversary celebrated with zombie video

29 May 2014, 11:56

The Pacific Symphony Orchestra has fused the disparate sounds of Michael Jackson's Thriller and Stravinsky's The Rite Of Spring in an incredible video tribute. With zombies.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Igor Stravinsky's groundbreaking work The Rite Of Spring, the Pacific Symphony have created a video celebration that combines the iconic piece with the video for Michael Jackson's hit 'Thriller'.

Titled The Frite Of Spring, the video features orchestra members in a 9-minute music video that not only shows them playing the Rite itself, but also acting in various roles too. It even contains a Vincent Price-style narration, just like the Michael Jackson original.

Watch the video above.
