On April 19th, 1911, at the Theatre Palais Garnier of Monte-Carlo, Nijinsky left his public utterly astounded at the world premiere of Le Spectre de la Rose. Since this performance, there have been numerous other interpretations and there is not one ballet lover who doesn’t have his or her absolute all-time favourite version.
"...In my opinion, Le Spectre de la Rose is a type of gate, a door into another time period, a fourth dimension enabling me to communicate with this highly important moment in the history of dance”.
