Short biography
Serge Diaghilev's most famous achievement was the creation and directorship of the Ballets Russes (1909-1929). The company's extraordinary roster of dancers included Anna Pavlova, Vaslav Nijinsky, Tamara Karsavina, Olga Spessivtseva, Ida Rubinstein, Lydia Lopokova, Alicia Markova, and Serge Lifar, who performed now-famous works by great choreographers including Petipa, Fokine, Massine, Bronislava Nijinska, Nijinsky, and the young George Balanchine. The movie "The Red Shoes" is a thinly-disguised dramatization of Diaghilev and the Ballet Russes. He died suddenly at age 57.
