raquelwasalittlelamb: Hello! I'm writing a paper on the influence and role of the Ballets Russes on Multimedia and Arts, I was wondering if you knew of any papers or works that you could indicate me and that are available online? Your blog is an excellent resource and a joy, by the way. Thank you so much either way.
Hi! Sorry for the delay in replying, I hope this can still help with your project. For online resources, I’m afraid I can’t refer you to any academic papers, but I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of the V&A’s resources related to their BR exhibitions. There was a really excellent series of blog entries by a curator there that I enjoyed, but I’m not sure how useful that would be on an essay-writing basis. MyBalletsRusses is a fansite run by a collector that might point you in the way of some interesting stuff, though. For images and factoids I’ve thoroughly plundered the National Gallery of Australia.
If you have JSTOR access, there looks to be an abundance of works there — I’m in a bit of a hurry to answer this before it becomes too out of date to be helpful, so I can’t point you to a specific few, but for papers and scholarly works that might do the trick. Good luck on your paper, and have fun writing!
