Balanchine and the Lost Muse

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with details of the motorboat accident that killed Lidia Ivanova as well as the public's reaction to her death. It also considers speculations that her death was not accidental. The discussion then turns to the departure of Lidochka's four friends for their tour on July 4, 1924. Their first stop was Germany, then London, and France, where they auditioned and were accepted into Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. On January 12, 1925, they arrived in Monte Carlo, the company's winter home. Georges eventually made his way to New York City in October 1933. His various American ballets are described.

Keywords:   Lidochka, Lidia Ivanova, George Balanchine, Ballets Russes, New York
