[This was the first time the company presented the Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor independent of Borodin's opera. The choreography was by Bartik and the design, unattributed, copied the original production at the Maryinsky Theater in St. Petersburg. Two weeks later, on April 3, Diaghilev's visiting Ballets Russes introduced another staging of the Polovtsian Dances, designed by Nicholas Roerich and choreographed by Michel Fokine.]
