Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes 1909-1929 by Jane Pritchard (2011). This book, originally published to accompany a retrospective exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, examines the origins, development, and long-term influence of the Ballets Russes.
In the 20th century Sergei Diaghilev brought theater and dance to the forefront of culture with his extraordinary Ballets Russes. From 1909 to 1929, the impresario attracted the involvement of artists and designers (Picasso, Matisse, Chanel), composers (Stravinsky), dancers (Nijinsky and Massine), and even young George Balanchine, all of whom helped to create true collaborations never before seen in the performing arts.
