Notes

Title from title screen (viewed on May 4 2007).

'The Ballets Russes project celebrates the vision and legacy of three legendary ballet companies that toured to Australia between 1936 and 1940. These companies, under the artistic leadership of Colonel Wassily de Basil, could trace their lineage back to Serge Diaghilev's Ballet Russe, a company that took Paris by storm in 1909 with the best of Russian ballet, music and design and that continued to lead the world in theatrical innovation until 1929. The Ballets Russes project is a collaborative partnership between the Australian Ballet, the University of Adelaide and the National Library of Australia. Under the banner 'Ballets Russes in Australia: our cultural revolution', the project will bring together outstanding creators across disciplines and will delve into the environment that gave rise to the Diaghilev phenomenon and saw its legacy take hold in Australia. It will have performance, research and documentation outcomes making it an innovative project highlighting a rarely recognised conjunction between the performing arts and scholarship. The project will culminate in a celebration of the centenary of Diaghilev's first Paris season in 1909. It has been supported by a significant grant from the Australian Research Council and will unfold over four years from 2006 to 2009.'
