Sergei Diaghilev brought cultures together and challenged the existing cultural order in a highly productive way. By expanding his international activities into art exhibitions and stage shows, Diaghilev connected people and ideas in what became arguably the first continuous large-scale cross-cultural and cross-genre project in the 20th century.¬† His talent and exquisite taste ensured the highest quality of his “Russian Seasons” productions during the 25 years of his leadership and after.¬† His partners became leaders of their own projects and carried his innovative style. Diaghilev’s apprentices worked in major cultural centers across the world.
