‘Russian Ballet’ in London, 1941


Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

 

I wondered if anyone could help me identify the company in this photo. According to the photographer Lee Miller it shows the ‘Russian Ballet’ and was taken in 1941. Any help very much appreciated!

  • Agatha changed the title to ‘Russian Ballet’ in London, 1941

I wonder if it could be the Lydia Kyasht company Ballet de la Jeunesse Anglaise. They were active in the World War II years performing in theatres in the U.K, and their advertising posters and programmes refer to the production as Russian Ballet.
