The Museum of Russian Icons presents “Emil Hoppé: Photographs from the Ballets Russes,” now through March 8, 2020. The exhibitions pays homage to the genius of two men: famed Russian impresario Sergei Diaghilev who, more than a century ago, founded the Ballets Russes; and renowned photographer Emil Otto Hoppé, who, between 1911 and 1921, photographed the champions of that illustrious company. With both studio portraits and ballet sequences, this visual chronicle presents not only the leading stars of the Ballets Russes such as Vaslav Nijinsky, Adolph Bolm, Michel and Vera Fokine, and Tamara Karsavina, but also celebrities whose connection with Diaghilev was tangential–such as Mathilde Kschessinska, Anna Pavlova, and Hubert Stowitts.
