Re: Odyssey Program Presents "The Magic of the Ballets Russes"

"The Magic of the Ballets Russes," a seven-session course offered by Johns Hopkins University's non-credit Odyssey Program, will explore Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, from the bold music commissioned by composers such as Igor Stravinsky and Erik Satie to the captivating sets and costumes designed by famous artists such as Picasso, Bakst and Matisse.

The course includes slide-illustrated lectures, a tour of the Baltimore Museum of Art's exhibition Diaghilev and The Ballets Russes and a reception and tour of the Evergreen House, featuring an exhibit entitled, A Russian's Winter in Baltimore: Leon Bakst at Evergreen.

The course will be taught by museum curators and educators who will provide insights into dance, music, costumes and set design.

These interesting evening session classes run from Wednesday, March 12 through Wednesday, April 30 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street. The cost is $146 for all seven classes or $110 for BMA members. For more information or to sign up, please call 410-516-4842 or visit www.odyssey.jhu.edu.
