The Kirov celebrates Nijinsky : Shéhérazade( Visual )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sheherazade is based on the first story of The Thousand and One Nights and danced to music by Rimsky-Korsakov. When it was first staged, with Nijinsky in the role of the Golden Slave, Mikhail Fokine's choreography of the exotic and passionate tale was a huge success. The ballet's triumph was also due to the fabulous set and costume designs of Léon Bakst. This Kirov staging recreates Bakst's designs. Svetlana Zakharova dances the title role, with Farukh Ruzimatov as the slave lover she risks all for. This live recording was made at the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris
The Kirov celebrates Nijinsky : Le Spectre de la rose( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Created by Fokine to the music of Weber's Invitation to the Dance, Le Spectre de la rose is one of the choreographer's most poetic creations. With Zhanna Ayupova as the young girl who dreams that the spirit of the rose (Igor Kolb) enters her window and dances with her before disappearing with a spectacular leap, this Kirov staging recreates the original décor designed by Léon Bakst, the charm of which lies in its subtle understanding of the romantic ethos of the 1830s-1840s

The decorative art of Léon Bakst by Arsène Alexandre( Book )

17 editions published between 1913 and 1973 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The explosion of the Ballets Russes on the Paris stage in the early years of this century marked the beginning of a great new age in dance. Traditions were shattered, an almost superhuman new talent was introduced (Nijinsky), a new approach to ballet was created and explored, and perhaps most important, every facet of the art, from music to set design, was in the hands of a superior artist. Leon Bakst, the Ballets Russes's costume and set designer, was an outstanding member of the group; his visual imagination is lastingly associated with the greatest years of the modern ballet. This book presents, in 48 full color and 29 black and white plates, the art of Leon Bakst, from costumes and set designs to independent paintings. Here are reproductions of Bakst's own water colors for the unforgettable costumes of L'Oiseu de Feu, Cleopatre, Scheherazade, Narcisse, Salome, Dphnis et Chloe, Carnaval and other major ballets. Some of these costume were designed for Nijinksy, or for Ida Rubinstein, or Tamara Karsavina. Here are the rajahs, high priests, sultans, eunuchs, nymphs, bacchantes, Boeotians, harlequin, faun, Indian dancers and all the rest of the fabulous figures that appeared in these productions. Here is also the scenery, the elaborate paintings, in which the colors are so vivid that they seem to become almost palpable. The costumes show Bakst's genius for 'line and color in movement,' and all represent his original contribution to the freshness and uniqueness of the Ballets Russes
