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.
