An extensive collection of programmes giving a full insight into the history of the founding and transformation of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. Originally conceived by Sergei Diaghilev, the dancing company Ballet Russes was left with substantial debts after the death of the impresario in 1929. Its property was claimed by its creditors, and the company of dancers dispersed. Colonel Wassily de Basil and his associate René Blum revived the dancing company by founding the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo in 1931. The new company, which was joined by the choreographers and Diaghilev's alumni Léonide Massine and George Balanchine, gave its first performance at the Monte Carlo Opera already in 1932. By 1935 gradually deteriorating business relationship between de Basil and Blum led to a split and the formation of two separate companies – Blum's Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and de Basil's Original Ballet Russe. The Blum's new company presented its first season in 1938 - starting in Monte Carlo, then moving to London, and finally in October of that year performing at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. The Original Ballet Russe also presented itself for the first time in May 1938 at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in London, a few hundred yards away from the Theatre R [Attributes: Soft Cover]
