The success of the Ballets Russes was legendary, but there is more to the legend than its name: the actual story, the adventure - conceived by one man and lived by a few-that lasted only eight seasons and three summers. From 1911 to 1914, Serge Diaghilev, driven by conviction and stubbornness, turned his vision into reality. He collaborated with Leon Bakst, Igor Stravinsky, and Pablo Picasso (to name a few) to create an explosion of creativity in Western Europe the likes of which had never been seen in the world of art. Thanks to Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, the most illustrious page in the history of ballet, one of the most glorious moments in the adventure of art, was written. To turn the pages of this stunning tome is to follow Diaghilev's on his creative quest, one that continues to influence art, theater, ballet, and fashion to this day.
