Some theatrical events live on in popular memory to become legends – such were Nijinsky’s appearances in Diaghilev’s early Saisons Russes in Paris. Mikhail Fokine was Diaghilev’s chief choreographer and his choreography marked a departure from many of the rigid rules and forms of classical ballet and ushered in a new expressiveness. He is widely considered to have been the creator of modern dance. This sparkling Russian gala features four Fokine ballets, all associated with Nijinsky.
