She's another dancer on my long list of performances to catch in Heaven.

R.G. you have won your place in the aforementioned Heaven (though I persist in awaiting my time machine.)

other replies have wondered if the first posted pix were taken during LL's appearances in the US, eventually on the Broadway stage, but those dates are around '12 and these seem to be more certainly from '16 when she rejoined Diaghilev's troupe.
here are scans of three examples Andrew sent me; the one of Nijinsky is unfamiliar to me and the one of Spesivtseva positively giddy.

additionally Mackrell writes that Spessivtseva joined up with the Ballets Russes troupe in the U.S. during the fall of '16, thus dating these photos as likely later inr '16.
p.p.s. A. Foster has further provided a scan of another photo from this 'series,' which he says was "almost certainly backstage at the Manhattan Opera House" adding that the picture was most likely "taken during the second Diaghilev tour of 1916," which is when Spessivtseva became part of the group.
