VASLAV NIJINSKY

Dancer

Deauville will probably have been the first city in France to welcome Vaslav Nijinsky after Paris. It was on the occasion of the first season of the new casino inaugurated in 1912. That year, the tenor Fiodor Chaliapin of the Moscow Opera, headliner of the russian seasons, performer at the inauguration of the theater of great opera tunes in front of an audience from Paris by a Deauville-express. On August 16, Vaslav Nijinsky, flag bearer of the Russian ballets, symbol of a revolutionary choreographic form plays The specter of the rose.

In tribute to this representation, a plaque was placed on the facade of the Casino, on Place Yves Saint-Laurent in 2010.
