Following its triumphant Coliseum debut in 2011 and four successful seasons in Paris Théâtre des Champs-Élysées Saisons Russes Du XX1e Siècle returns to London.

In 1909 Anna Pavlova, Tamara Karsavina, and Vaslav Nijinsky conquered Paris in this Romantic one-act ballet then entitled Les Sylphides. Consisting of four scenes to the music of a polonaise, nocturne, mazurka and tarantella by Glazunov, the ballet has no plot, but conveys the mood of reverie and melancholy between dream and reality of a young poet in the world of the Sylphides.

The Firebird
Based on the Russian folk tale of the Firebird… the mythical character who protects Prince Ivan, the hero of the tale. Originally created for Tamara Karsavina and choreographed by Michel Fokine. It was Stravinsky’s breakthrough work of 1910.
