EXHIBITION “DIAGHILEV. GENERAL REHEARSAL” (October, 04 – February, 05, 2023, Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow)
The famous “Russian Seasons” made a real revolution in the theatrical sphere, dancers and choreographers created the ballet of the 20th century, and artists determined the principles of designing performances that are still relevant today. Back then Diaghilev, who perfectly understood the importance of advertising, used to prepare the audience for the upcoming spectacles by open dress rehearsals, special screenings for journalists and critics. The exposition includes stage costumes, sketches and decorations for performances by Sergei Diaghilev.
