Show Full Description

Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, founded in Paris in 1909, generated ground-breaking artistic influence that lasts through today. Engineering collaborations between composers, choreographers, and visual artists, Diaghilev established a creative model whose concepts are with us at Lincoln Center through the work of George Balanchine. The Ballets Russes brought the essence of Russian folk culture to Western stages through art, music, and the unparalleled technical skills of Russian dancers. For CMS’s season finale, we pay tribute to the company with music of composers commissioned by the Ballets Russes. Click here for more info (Opens in a new window)
