Quick Reference

Ballet-oratorio in two acts with choreography by Massine, libretto by Kochno, music by Nabokov, designs by Pavel Tchelitchev (sets and costumes) and Pierre Charbonnier (projections). Premiered 6 Jun. 1928 by the Ballets Russes de Diaghilev at the Théâtre Sarah Bernhardt in Paris, with Irina Beliankina and Serge Lifar. The ballet, based on a visionary hymn to nature by the 18th-century Russian court poet Lomonosov, made use of the latest technology, including neon lights and film projections. Despite its spectacular stage effects, Ode never achieved great popularity and it was dropped from the repertoire.

Subjects: Dance.
