II International scientific-practical conference
MARCH 29, 2018 / SAINT-PETERSBURG

Diaghilev: The Art of Producing.
Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow!

'Diaghilev's Russian ballet, the most advanced ballet in the world, should not linger at one stage, living only in the past and even in the present; on the contrary, it must foreshadow the future, show the way for the crowd, and discover things that have not been discovered yet by anyone.'


Serge Diaghilev
