Yes please report back onemouseplace and anyone else who goes. Exhibitions are so expensive now I only go if I know it's going to be very substantial and what I am interested in!

I went this morning. There is a full room of Ballets Russes things - a few costumes from Coq d'Or, sketches for Les Noces... They were playing a clip from Coq d'Or (1930s) and one from Les Noces from 70s (Dowell and Beriosova??? It didn't say). The exhibition overall I found very interesting but I wouldn't say the Ballets Russes room was stuffed full of either exhibits or information.

Agreed.  I really enjoyed the exhibition as a whole, but I wouldn't go just on the basis of the stage/ costume design aspect of her work.  For The Firebird there was only a theatre poster and a design for the backdrop.

 

I found plenty of her work very interesting and striking though, and could see how she came to stage and costume design.
