Experience four essential works – performed in their unsurpassable original choreography. At the beginning of the last century, Serge Diaghilev shook conventions and threw open the door to modernity by bringing the artistic elite of the era - choreographers, painters and musicians - under one breathtaking playbill: Debussy, Stravinsky, Falla, Picasso, Bakst, Massine, Nijinsky, Fokine... This tribute reveals an unexpected diversity of inspiration.
