Dallas Neo-Classical Ballet says
Le Train Bleu originally premiered on June 20, 1924 at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées. It was choreographed by Bronislava Nijinska for Serge Diaghilev's Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. The libretto was by Jean Cocteau, music by Darius Milhaud, set designs were by Henri Laurens, curtain by Pablo Picasso, and costumes were designed by Coco Chanel. The title was taken from the night train called Le Train Bleu, that transported wealthy passengers from Calais to the Mediterranean Sea; the ballet itself was set at the fashionable resort of Deauville. The ballet has a sporting theme, with swimmers, tennis players, and golfers and is a study on the wealthy youth of the time. Laurens supplied a Cubist beach scene, and Chanel outfitted the cast in sportswear.

DNCB plans to restage this delightful ballet while collaborating with Zachary Broadhurst and Danny Skinner on set design and Nita Marie on costume design. Come see it Saturday, June 13, 2015 at the Dallas Museum of Art! We will have two performances, 1 & 3 pm!

Following the 1:00 p.m. performance, the DMA will offer docent-led tours highlighting works in the collection from the 1920s, as well as a visit to the Wendy and Emery Reves collection, which recreates the Mediterranean villa once owned by Coco Chanel and houses many of her furnishings.
