I decided to do some research on the ballet Le Spectre de la Rose because it includes some of the people we could look up as well. In English it means, “The Spirit of the Rose,” and it is a shorter ballet written by Jean-Louis Vaudoyer. The basic storyline is about a young girl who dreams of dancing with the spirit of the rose she received from her very first ball she attends. Michael Fowkine was the choreographer and interestingly enough he finished the dance in about three or four practices. Leon Bakst was the set and costumer designer who is another one of the people we could research. On April 19, 1911, the ballet was performed for the first time in Monte Carlo. The spirit rose was performed by Vaslav Nijinsky and the girl was performed by Tamara Karsavina. From what i can tell the ballet was a great hit, and became world wide known for Vaslav Nijinsky’s amazing leap through a window at the end of the performance. I think i would really enjoy watching this ballet!
