In the twentieth century, perhaps the best Western analogue to the Khōn masked
drama is the Ballets Russes, which as such is no longer extant as performing art
in spite of being of incomparable signi cance in the history of the arts in the
twentieth century. Initiated by Russian impresario Sergei Pavlovich Diaghilev in
Paris, the Ballets Russes was performed between 1909 and 1929. Although its
focus was on exquisite ballet dancing, the Ballets Russe yet became an
exemplar of the ...

In 191 1, Diaghilev got Gabriele D'Annunzio, Claude Debussy, and Leon Bakst to
collaborate with Michel Fokine on another of his ballets. He persuaded Andre
Derain to work with two composers — Satie and Milhaud — as well as George
Balanchine, on a Ballets Russes creation of 1926. At no period before or since
have so many major visual artists been involved in theatrical production. Perhaps
the nearest comparable phenomena are the collaborations of Martha Graham

Lambert's point seems to be that the ultimate truth of the Ballets Russes was
homosexuality, and that homosexual expression belonged only to the 1890s. As
a homosexual, Diaghilev could not – in Lambert'sview – also be Modern.
Lambert also impliesa contrastbetween a trulymanlyandauthentic creative act,
and homosexual imitation. He damns Diaghilev for his 'scrapbook methods', '
scrapbook taste', 'scrapbook ballets', and'scrapbook mentality'. Andyet,the
pastiche or 'scrapbook' ...

book presents in-depth analysis of a group of ballets chosen to stand for the
larger history of this phenomenon, taking advantage of the thematic and aesthetic
variety visible in Ballets Russes productions while also attending to ideas ...
Finally, it should be said that unlike much work written about the Ballets Russes,

Levinson, on the other hand, believed that the value of dance lay in its physical
properties as “l'art plastique” and insisted on the centrality of form or ballet
technique. He demonstrated this through an examination of the aesthetic nature
of “old ballet” (“classic” ballet). Levinson's ultimate aim was to free modern ballet (
as presented via the Ballets Russes) from its dependency on decor and music (
something that future Opéra ballet director Serge Lifar also desired). Levinson

with an eye to perfection. But Bloch's Judaism, however hidden, prevented him
from being accepted and welcomed by the parents of the protagonist, as if
Bloch's presence might infect the hero. Bloch also takes a fiercely positive view of
the contemporary writer Bergotte, who has not as yet succeeded in convincing
others of his great talent. Bergotte fills the hero with a joy “without comparison,
