MUSC 458 - Diaghilev and His Time

3 credits
This course investigates the role of Serge Diaghilev and his famous Ballet Russes in shaping the course of music and dance from c. 1909-1929. Special emphasis is placed on the works of Igor Stravinsky with reference to his music for the stage. Time is also devoted to the interrelationships between various artists, dancers, and writers such as Picasso, Cocteau, Nijinsky, Bakst, Massine, and others who were active in Paris. Works studied are looked at from the perspective of the composer, the choreographer, the set and costume designer, the dancers and the audience.
