VASLAV NIJINSKY

Dancer

Deauville was probably 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 Chaliapine of the Moscow Opera, headliner of the Russian seasons, performed great opera arias during the inauguration of the theater in front of an audience that had come from Paris on a Deauville-express. On August 16, Vaslav Nijinsky, flag-bearer of the Russian ballet, symbol of a revolutionary choreographic form, performed Le spectre de la rose.

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