    The choreographer first turned his attention to Mozartiana in includes divertissements by Bronislava Nijinska created for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and the Three Ivans. ; Choreography by Nijinska; Design by Coco Chanel; at the beach; Libretto by Cocteau Serge Lifar Training to be choreographer under Nijinska, but Diaghelev dies; Asked to choreograph for Paris Opera and ends up staying for 25 years; Traditional past from training at Paris Opera, but had ideas from new generation of artist (Ballet Russes);.
