Exhibition on Failed Russian Ballet to Take Place in Moscow

On May 30 the Museum of Private Collections in Moscow will open the exhibition on the history of creation of the ballet The Sacred Spring and its premiere in Paris.

The premiere of The Sacred Spring based on music of the genius composer Igor Stravinsky and staged by the great dancer Vaslav Nijinsky and decorated by the illustrious artist Nicholas Roerich, which took place in Paris during Diaghilev’s seasons, turned an all-around failure.

It is a common story for many ground-breaking modernist works: one can even say that if the Parisian public had not hissed an opera or a ballet, the premiere took place in vain and it had no chances to go down in history of the 20th century art. Everything turned out very well for The Sacred Spring and now the history of preparing the scandalous premiere and further destiny of this symbolist ballet on pagan frenzy is told about at the exhibition. The Pushkin Museum has collected it from things from its own store rooms and other museums’ funds, including Roerich Museum and Bakhrushin Museum. The exhibition runs till July 28.
