Djagilev and Ballets Russes

“Djagilev and Ballets Russes” is a conference with video projection by Franco Bolletta, artistic director and organizer of the dance activities of the Teatro La Fenice Foundation.

“Ballets Russes” was a classical ballet company, which after having performed for a few seasons in Paris, was officially founded in 1911 by the Russian impresario Sergej Djagilev. The headquarters was first established in Paris and later moved to Monte Carlo. The staff of the company included the best dancers from the two most important theaters: the Bolšoj in Moscow and the Mariinsky in St. Petersburg. 

The initial intent of Djagilev was to export Russian technicality and art to Western Europe, but immediately the genius of the artist, fused with that of Italian, French and Spanish artists, led to the creation of a team composed of most important artists of the age of the caliber, to name just a few, by Picasso, Debussy and Nižinskij. 

The great vitality of the Russian Ballets made its way through the next two decades, so much so that it became the most influential ballet company of the 20th century. Between 1925 and 1929 the orchestra of the company was led by the French composer and director Roger Désormière.
