This ballet was created in Paris and became the first folk-themed ballet. Igor Stravinsky set up a group of Russian emigrant supporters, thus making possible the production of this ballet starring VatslavNizhinsky. Many years later, this project has again been staged in many theatres internationally, and now it’s Russia’s turn. The ballet has long ceased to be regarded merely as “amusing Russian scenes” and now enjoys the status of a real musical drama revived for Russia’s main ballet venue.© 2016-2019 moscovery.com
