DIAGHILEV AND THE BALLET RUSSES 1909-1929

While the early 20th century was rich with creative energy, no one brought theater and dance to the forefront of culture quite like Sergei Diaghilev did with his extraordinary Ballets Russes. From 1909 to 1929, the impresario attracted the involvement of artists and designers (Picasso, Matisse, Chanel), composers (Stravinsky), dancers (Nijinsky and Massine), and even a young George Balanchine.
