Russian Ballets: The Afternoon Of A Faun

“The Afternoon of a Faun” (1912) based on the music by Claude Debussy was a  successful short ballet performed in the frames of “the Russian Seasons” in Paris. This short, light flirting dancing impromptu staging in the Ancient Greece environment is a curious artistic expression of the beginning of the 20th century & a hidden gem of the classic Russian ballet.

Here is the version with Rudolf Nufiev: The Afternoon of a Faun.Enjoy the performance!
