- This essay traces the multiple legacies of the Ballets Russes during the 100 years following the companyâ€™s first performances in 1909. Dividing the intervening century into four periods ("The Lifetime of the Ballets Russes," "1930-1954," "1954-1987: Glamor and Revival," and "1987 to the Present: Historicity and the End of the Cold War"), it analyzes the dispersal, migration, transformation, and assimilation of its repertory, choreographic methodologies, cultural narratives, aesthetics, and historiography.
