Inhalt
The biography of a cultural hero, »René Blum and the Ballets Russes« uncovers the events in the life of the enigmatic and brilliant writer and producer who resurrected the Ballets Russes after Diaghilev died. A passionate and prominent littérateur, René Blum was also brother of Léon Blum, the first socialist PM of France. As an editor of a chic literary journal, he moved in social and artistic circles with such celebrated figures as Claude Debussy, Marcel Proust, André Gide and Paul Valéry. His efforts to save his ballet company eventually helped to bring many of the world's greatest dancers and choreographers - among them Fokine, and Balanchine - to American ballet stages, influencing the development of dance in the U.S. Tragically, he was arrested in 1941 during a roundup of Jewish intellectuals and ultimately sent to Auschwitz.
