I check out the Gresham College YouTube channel from time to time, because it's got a bunch of lectures on different topics, some of which I find really interesting. It looks as though they've recently started a lecture series on Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes; there are two lectures available at the moment, but it looks as though there are going to be more.


Here's a link to the first lecture.
