Some theatrical events live on in popular memory to become legends - such were Nijinsky's appearances in Diaghilev's early Saisons Russes in Paris. Mikhail Fokine was Diaghilev's chief choreographer and his choreography marked a departure from many of the rigid rules and forms of classical ballet and ushered in a new expressiveness. He is widely considered to have been the creator of modern dance.

This sparkling Russian gala features four Fokine ballets, all associated with Nijinsky. Recorded live from the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, the Kirov Ballet brings to life, once again, the full glory of the Ballets Russes.
