Adolphe Bolm as Amoun 1910, Cleopatra

Based on Fokine’s 1908 ballet Une Nuit d’Égypte, the new version, which was retitled Cléopâtre, featured three of the most famous dancers to appear with the Ballets Russes: Anna Pavlova (1881–1931), Ida Rubinstein (1885–1960), and Tamara Karsavina (1885–1978). In later performances Adolph Bolm (1884–1951) danced Fokine’s role of Amoun. The work remained in the repertory of the Ballets Russes until 1929 (Cléopâtre: music by Anton Arensky, with additional music by Aleksandr Glazunov, Mikhail Glinka, Modest Mussorgsky, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Sergei Taneyev, and Nikolai Tcherepnin; sets and costumes by Léon Bakst; choreography by Michel Fokine; premiere on June 2, 1909, Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris.)
