Nadezhda Babich about the “Velvet Season”

The programme includes excerpts from the most popular ballets, modern ballet compositions to the music of Ukrainian composers.

Before he left for a triumphant tour of North America in January 1928, Maurice Ravel had agreed to write a Spanish-flavoured ballet score for his friend, the Russian dancer and actress Ida Rubinstein
