'I don't do anything', Diaghilev once said, 'but I am indispensable'. This compelling biography explores the mysterious and mercurial personality of the creator of the Ballets Russes. With a stellar cast of artists such as Picasso, Cocteau, Stravinsky and Prokoviev, it brings to life the sophisticated, hedonistic world of 1920s Paris, while never losing sight of the man himself, probing his vision, his demons, and his mutually destructive affair with his protege Nijinsky.
