“Ballets Russes”

The Folies Bergère is a famous revue theater in Paris, designed by architect Maurice Picaud and opened in 1869. The theater is known for its spectacular revue shows, which offer a mix of dance, music, and comedic performances.

The building itself is an impressive example of Second Empire architecture, which was popular in France during the reign of Napoleon III. It is adorned with elaborate decorations, gilded carvings, and intricate ceiling paintings.

Throughout its history, the Folies Bergère has welcomed many famous artists onto its stage, including Josephine Baker, Mistinguett, and Maurice Chevalier. The theater was also a popular meeting place for artists and intellectuals, including Pablo Picasso and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

Today, the Folies Bergère is still an important venue in Paris, offering a variety of shows and concerts for visitors from around the world. It is an important part of Paris’s cultural landscape and a symbol of the city’s history and traditions.

Sergei Diaghilev (also known as Sergej Diaghilew) was a Russian art critic, impresario, and founder of the Ballets Russes, one of the most influential ballet companies of the 20th century. He was born on March 31, 1872, in Selishchi, Russia, and died on August 19, 1929, in Venice, Italy.

Diaghilev began his career as an art critic and was an important supporter of the Russian Art Nouveau movement in the early 1900s. In 1909, he founded the Ballets Russes, which he led to international success by bringing together some of the most significant artists of his time, including Igor Stravinsky, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Matisse.

Under Diaghilev’s leadership, the Ballets Russes developed into one of the most innovative and influential ballet companies in history. They brought many groundbreaking works to the stage, including Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring,” which caused a scandal at its premiere in 1913 due to its radical music and choreography.

Diaghilev died at the age of 57 from a kidney infection while on tour with the Ballets Russes. However, his legacy lives on in the numerous works he brought to the stage, which continue to inspire and influence to this day.

The Ballets Russes was an influential ballet company founded by Russian impresario Sergei Diaghilev in 1909. The company brought together some of the best dancers, choreographers, designers, and composers to create revolutionary works that pushed the boundaries of traditional ballet.

The Ballets Russes was based in Paris and performed throughout Europe and America. Their productions were known for their avant-garde costumes and set designs, exotic themes, and use of modern music.

Some of the most famous ballets produced by the Ballets Russes include Igor Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring,” “Petrouchka,” and Maurice Ravel’s “Daphnis et Chloé.” The company helped shape modern ballet and inspired many contemporary artists and choreographers.
