For a period of twenty years (1909–1929) Sergei Diaghilev’s “Ballets Russes” astonished European audiences and became the most influential ballet company of the 20th century. By employing very talented designer/artists in ground breaking artistic collaborations, his company redefined the aesthetics of ballet. Focusing on selected costumes, this lecture shows the relationships between designers' sketches, finished costumes, and thematic interpretations. We will look carefully at costume details and talk about the various fabrics and decorative trims that were used.
