01What Did Britain Do For Diaghilev? *20100223

Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, famous for their riotous Parisian premieres of ballets including The Rite of Spring, The Firebird, Scheherazade and Petrushka, spent longer in England than anywhere else.

Jane Pritchard, Curator of Dance at the Victoria and Albert Museum, tells this unlikely story, with the help of Nijinsky's head-dress, Cecchetti's cat and Sokolova's little black book.

A Loftus Audio production for BBC Radio 4.

Jane Pritchard traces 20 years of the Ballets Russes in England.
