This Alexandre Benois (1870-1960) design for Les Sylphides was worn by Lydia Lopokova around 1916.

The Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec recently closed its exhibition entitled the enchanting fantasy realm of Diaghilev's Ballets Russes: When Art Dances with Music.

"Over 80,000 people came, which is a remarkable number given the type of concept-exhibition it was," confirmed Linda Tremblay, in charge of press relations for the Musée.
