Ballet Appreciation Course: Fokine, Nijinsky and Diaghilev's Ballets Russes 1900-1919

Fokine, Nijinsky and Diaghilev's Ballets Russes 1900-1919



  Get WAY more out of John Neumeier's fabulous ballet Nijinsky, which the National Ballet of Canada will be performing in late November. This deeply layered and powerful ballet makes many allusions to the ballets of the era. Make sure you catch them all, and understand their significance for Nijinsky himself and for the history of ballet.
