Product Description

Review

'The ''legendary command'' of the Ballets Russes impresario was simply: ''Astonish me!''. A century on from its Paris debut, Diaghilev's dancers continue to do that in this handsome book . . . Mary E. Davis conveys the electric excitement from a collection of talents - music by Stravinsky, sets by Picasso, costumes by Bakst - that has never been equalled.' --The Independent

'Davis' vantage point offers intriguing insights into the broader cultural impact of Diaghilev's enterprise. Her book is a welcome addition to recent scholarship on the Ballets Russes and its enduring allure.' --Times Higher Education

'A wonderful descriptive account of the Ballets Russes from its inception to its demise, emphasizing the relation of the company and its development to the fashion and arts world. Written with great clarity it explores these relationships in detail. Most informative and insightful.' --Elizabeth Wilson
