Ballets Russes - A Century of Revelation

100 years ago Serge Diaghilev ignited the fires of an unprecedented revolution in music and the arts with the creation of his Ballets Russes. To celebrate the centenary, in May 2009, WFMT in collaboration with Boston's Ballets Russes 2009 Festival presented this two hour historical documentary illustrating the Ballets Russes' colossal and lasting impact in a vibrant and fast flowing mix of music, interviews, and readings of memoirs. The documentary also previewed the ambitious Ballets Russes 2009 Festival which features a concentrated ten day offering of dance and musical performances, exhibitions, films, an academic conference, an outdoor festival celebrating Russian culture, performances of Russian folk dance and music, puppeteers, mimes, and a fashion show.
