I have a practical question. I tried (from the States) to purchase a ticket to the exhibit, on Oct. 6, so that I can attend Jane Pritchard's Curator's Talk..... and the purchase would not go through. Does anyone have any suggestions????? Please????
Otherwise there are some other general and booking related telephone/e-mail contacts on the web-site (they come up when you double-click on "contact us" at the bottom of the page)

"Diaghilev special: Jane Pritchard, Curator of Dance at the V&A, talks to Carole Woddis about Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes, the upcoming V&A exhibition which marks the centenary of the Ballets Russes, including items relating to The Firebird (1910) and The Rite of Spring (1913). She also describes the V&A's Theatre and Performance Collection, located at Blythe House. More info: www.vam.ac.uk"
Short clip on Ballets Russes costumes at the National Gallery of Australia.
"The National Gallery of Australia has one of the most important collections of modern theatre art in the world. In 1973 at auction, the NGA purchased 47 lots, comprising about 400 assorted items. It has taken years of conservation and research to piece together these various items – hats, belts, coats, trousers, dresses – into about 100 complete or nearly complete costumes."
