Lecture and Concert: Hearing Diaghilev's Ballets Russes

When: Sun., April 12, 2 p.m. 2015

The opulence of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes was not just visual, its virtuosity not just physical. Opulence and virtuosity also infused the music that gave life to the Ballets Russes. In this lecture/performance Kevin Salfen, Associate Professor of Music History, and faculty from the University of the Incarnate Word perform music by the remarkable composers who wrote for Diaghilev’s legendary corps de ballet.
