Un spectacle inoubliable autour de trois ballets de Stravinsky, avec notamment Le sacre du printemps dans la version originale de Nijinski.
A Russian folk tale in two scenes. Serge de Diaghilev heard Stravinsky for the first time on 6 February 1909, the day when his Fantastic Scherzo and Fireworks were created. Diaghilev was extremely impressed by this last work. Since his Ballets Russes had already performed for a season in Paris in 1909 and were a great success, he wished to repeat the experience the following year and include a brand new work inspired by the legend of the Firebird.

Two minutes of The Firebird the curtain rises and we re dazzled by fairytale splendour. Reconstructions of the original 1910 designs of Alexander Golovin, Leon Bakst and Michel Fokine fill the screen with layered castles and foliage. Flying and leaping in Fokine s reconstructed choreography comes the firebird herself (Ekaterina Kondaurova), sparking into life Fokine s simple scenario of good trouncing evil. Watching and listening bring no disjunctions. Music and design blend like hand and glove, and Gergiev s orchestra brings its own fusillade of colours. The Ballets Russes version of Le Sacre du Printemps is staged in Millicent Hodson s more speculative reconstruction, usefully explored in a bonus interview. Here, ballet s cauldron bubbles very strangely.

Set in the early 1910s at a time of passionate artistic experimentalism, and based on biographical fact, this is the story of Vaslav Nijinsky, the young and brilliant but headstrong premier danseur and aspiring choreographer of the Ballets Russes. The company is managed by the famous Sergei Diaghilev, himself a controlling and fiercely possessive impresario. The increasing tension between these powerful egos, exacerbated by homosexual desire and jealousy, becomes triangular when the young ballerina Romola de Pulsky determinedly attempts to draw the increasingly mentally unstable Nijinsky away from Diaghilev,

Featuring an eight-page gallery of full-color illustrations, here is a major new biography of Serge Diaghilev, founder and impresario of the Ballets Russes, who revolutionized ballet by bringing together composers such as Stravinsky and Prokofiev, dancers and choreographers such as Nijinsky and Karsavina, Fokine and Balanchine, and artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Bakst, and Goncharova.

This new DVD from Russia, a dazzling film version of three favourite ballets from the Diaghilev Ballets Russes seasons in Paris, was received several months after the Royal Ballet DVD, videoed at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. I found it wholly captivating and would be hard put to choose Firebirds between Leaane Benjamin in London and Nina Ananiashvili in Moscow.

A visual feast of 400 dazzling images, this is a comprehensive survey of the genre over the last century. The book also offers an overview of the development of fashion, as seen through the eyes of the greatest illustrators of the day. Early in the century fashion illustration reflected new, liberating currents in art and culture, such as the exoticism of the Ballets Russes, while the postwar period saw inspiration from the great Parisian couturiers. After the dominance of the celebrity fashion photographer in the '60s, a new generation of illustrators emerged, embracing the medium of the computer, while many returned to more traditional techniques.
