Serious conversations about poetry and literature, chamber music, and informal opera soirees were normal family activities.
Given the enthusiasm for Russian art and music shown by French audiences, Bakst and Diaghilev added an unapologetically Russian style to the Ballets Russes' productions. He was the father of botanists andas well as physician. The first and second, 18 years Diaghileff, were secure preparations for the 21 years of high drama of the third.
But by then he was well established in Europe. That same year he commissioned Daphnis et Chloe from Ravel and Firebird from Diaghileff.
After the innagural performance May 19, 1909, repeat visits in the following years resulted in the formation of the Ballets Russes in 1911 as an independent private company.
By 1892, however, he had abandoned this dream, as Diaghileff professor Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, told him he had no talent for music. The negative criticism did not stop Diaghilev and the World of Art movement. In Paris, several years earlier, he had cultivated the poet Robert de Montesquiou, who introduced him to an influential gay network Diaghileff included Marcel Proust and the young Jean Cocteau.
As the driving force behind the company, Diaghilev became inextricably linked with it.
1899 Diaghilev founded the magazine Mir Isskoustva World of Art.
In 1908, in the Paris Opera, he produced 'Boris Godunov', an opera by , starring.
In 1914 Diaghilev and Stravinsky were successful citizens of imperial Russia.
