The Cabinet of Ministers is discussing the launch of the international tour of the best Russian creative collectives, presenting overseas exhibitions and Russian film. The project is called "Russian seasons" — direct reference to the phenomenon of overseas tour of Diaghilev 1906-1929.

what, what if? That the government meets today on this subject, ITAR-TASS with reference to the press-службу of the Cabinet of Ministers. "Russian seasons" will be held annually in one of European States, starting in 2017. What — is not known, but God himself commanded to start from France, Paris. As it was in 1906-1908, when Sergei Diaghilev launched perhaps the most famous in the twentieth century project, which brought world fame to Russian art.

Diaghilev "Russian seasons" — is the annual tours of Russian Opera and ballet, which took place in Europe and even in Latin America until 1929 and ended with the death of Diaghilev. The seasons in the different years shone the legendary dancers Anna Pavlova, Vaslav Nijinsky, Tamara Karsavina, Mathilde Kschessinska, Serge Lifar, IDA Rubinstein. In the design of Opera and ballet was attended by artists Leon Bakst, Alexander Benois, Natalia Goncharova and Mikhail Larionov and others. It was during the execution of the project "Russian seasons" by Pablo Picasso met his future wife, the Russian ballerina Olga Khokhlova. Art historians note that the Diaghilev tour was of tremendous significance to promote Russian art in Europe, introduced the fashion of Russia and all Russian.

I Assume that the government turns to the head around the same idea — to remedy this in recent years, the political image of Russia, showing in the West the cultural achievements of the country: visual arts, circus, film, theatre and ballet. Well, right. The organizing Committee of "Russian seasons" headed by Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets and the Director of the State academic Mariinsky theatre Valery Gergiev.

Probably this idea is already in the advanced stage of development, as soon as the first tour is scheduled for the current year.
