What do Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky, Coco Chanel and Vaslav Nijinsky have in common?
Their careers were propelled to the forefront of world art by the 20th Century's greatest impresario, Sergei Diaghilev.
Revel in a lush, sexy and painfully revealing expose of the life of the impresario who ignited a cultural revolution that still resonates through our culture today.
This orgy of life, loves, art and personal/professional loss is voiced by the master himself. He weaves colorful yarns of life backstage, presenting and loving superlative artists.

"On all of Life's journey it is of the utmost importance to travel first class." -Sergei Diaghilev
