Join Museums Worcestershire curator Philippa Tinsley for a 30 minute talk about the Museum & Art Gallery’s new exhibition.
About the exhibition:
A unique fabulous collection of costume and ephemera telling the stories of the Ballets Russes, the most spectacular and sometimes scandalous ballet company of the early 1900s. Never before seen together, the objects will pull visitors back to another era. Matisse was one of many artists commissioned to create costumes and scenery for the company, the exhibition also includes work by other great artists of the period including Dame Laura Knight.
