The Ballets Russes in America

Garafola, Lynn

This article examines the two tours of the United States by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in 1916-17, with a focus on Nijinsky's artistic breakthroughs in "Till Eulenspiegel," the response of American audiences to various ballets, and the economic fiasco of the second tour.
