Impresario's Decision

While immortalized in numerous still photographs, no film exists of Nijinsky dancing. Diaghilev never allowed the Ballets Russes to be filmed. He felt that the quality of film at the time could never capture the artistry of his dancers and that the reputation of the company would suffer if people saw it only in short jerky films.

They are now the creatures of Lord Morpheus and continue to live and perform their beauty in his realm.

You are the spirit, you are the perfume
You are the shadow that waltz around my dream
