EDITORS COMMENTS
This image captures a pivotal moment from the Diaghilev Ballet Company's groundbreaking production of The Prodigal Son, which premiered in London in 1929. In this scene, Russian dancers Felia Doubrovska and Serge Lilar gracefully perform a jazz-infused dance, embodying the spirit of the 1920s and showcasing the innovative fusion of classical and modern dance styles that defined Diaghilev's company. The Prodigal Son, choreographed by Bronislava Nijinska, was a seminal work in the history of ballet. It told the biblical story of the prodigal son through a series of dynamic and expressive dance sequences, set to music by Stravinsky. The production marked a departure from traditional ballet forms, incorporating elements of jazz and contemporary dance, and pushing the boundaries of what was considered acceptable in the world of classical dance. Felia Doubrovska, a Russian dancer of great beauty and versatility, was a leading figure in the Diaghilev Ballet Company. She was known for her expressive and emotive performances, and her interpretation of the role of the Prodigal Son's sister in this production was widely acclaimed. Serge Lilar, also a Russian dancer, was a virtuoso performer, renowned for his athleticism and grace. Together, they bring to life the passion and drama of this iconic dance work. This photograph, taken in London during the 1929 season of the Diaghilev Ballet Company, offers a glimpse into the past, transporting us back to an era of artistic innovation and experimentation in the world of dance.
