Hymn to Apollo: The Ancient World and the Ballets Russes Virtual Tour with Gallery Curator, Clare Fitzgerald (CAS ’04)

What can we know about ancient dance? Why did European avant-garde artists look to antiquity at the beginning of the twentieth century? Hymn to Apollo: The Ancient World and the Ballet Russes explores both the role of dance in ancient culture and the influence of antiquity on the modernist reinventions of the Ballets Russes, the ground-breaking dance company founded in Paris by Sergei Diaghilev.
