Serge Diaghilev (1872 to 1929) was an extraordinarily gifted impresario,

curator, director and animator of the arts. He was perfectly at home in

the wave of creative energy that pushed theatrical performance to the

forefront of the arts in the early twentieth century and perfectly

placed to export Russian culture to Western Europe.

Active in Europe

and America between 1909 and 1929, Diaghilev's Ballets Russes company

expanded the frontiers of theatre. Many of its acclaimed productions

were true collaborations, examples of gesamtkunstwerk (unified works of

art) that continue to capture the imagination of audiences a century

later.

This beautiful book takes advantage of new research and draws

on little-seen collections at the V+A to look at his life, his work, his

cultural milieu and, most importantly, the actual processes of creating

a ballet while working with some of the foremost creative thinkers of

the period.
