The house of Chanel, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse were just a few of the visionary collaborators who brought modernism and panache to the costumes and sets of the young Ballet Russes, the legendary company launched in Paris in 1909. With 135 pieces, including the 50-by-30-foot set from "The Firebird" and nubby bodysuits made by Coco Chanel, this exhibit explores the company's cutting-edge use of visual art in performance.
