Ballets Russes film found

Very close to the close of the Victoria & Albert’s Diaghilev exhibition in London, the curator, Jane Pritchard, has uncovered something that no one thought existed, a film of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes in performance. The ballet is Les Sylphides and the dancer in the role of the Poet is one of  Diaghilev’s lovers, Serge Lifar.

The clip can be seen here:
