Léon Bakst: Firebird, Ballerina, 1910
Léon Bakst: Firebird, Ballerina, 1910
There was also the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo from 1932 to 1963

The Ballets Russes was a ballet company established in 1909 by the Russian impresario Serge Diaghilev and resident first in the Théâtre Mogador and Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris; and then in Monte Carlo. It sprang out of the Tsar's Imperial Ballet of St. Petersburg, from where all its dancers were associated and trained, and the influence of the great choreographer Marius Petipa. It created a sensation in Western Europe because of the great vitality of Russian ballet compared to what was current in France at the time. It became the most influential ballet company in the 20th century, and that influence, in one form or another, has lasted to this day.
