Catalogue Note

After the death of Diaghilev in 1929, René Blum and Colonel Vassili de Basil hired George Balanchine and Léonide Massine as choreographers and Serge Grigoriev as régisseur-général to form the Ballets Russes de Monte-Carlo. As the company was about to be declared bankrupt in 1934, an American Sol Hurok took over as manager and renamed it Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo.
