Summary In May, 1909 Sergei Diaghilev astonished the world of dance with his first ballet presentations in Paris which demonstrated an unprecedented combination of vitality and grace, originality and technical sophistication. As a primary axis of Diaghilevs activities during the life of the company known as the Ballets Russes, Monte Carlo is celebrating this centenary with a major exhibition of over 300 artworks relating to the Saisons Russes between 1909 and 1929. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog with contributions by leading specialists in the history of the Russian dance and the visual arts.
