“Diaghilev orchestra magistralement pendant vingt années (1909-1929) le succès des Ballets russes. L'aventure commence à Saint-Pétersbourg, lorsqu'un cercle de jeunes esthètes, fondateurs de la revue Le Monde de l'Art, se passionnèrent pour le renouvellement du théâtre, la défense de la littérature et de l'art contemporains, la diffusion en Occident des richesses culturelles de la Russie.”
