Program notes

Much more than just an homage to Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, Jean-Christophe Maillot’s vision of Scheherazade resonates as an exploration of the artistic universe that shaped his thirty-year-long career. Léon Bakst’s sets and Michel Fokine’s original choreography inspire this fascinating 2011 reinterpretation.
