A man walks into the spotlight. He needs our ears and, it appears, our purses. But this is no ordinary fund-raiser and no ordinary speaker. He's probably the single most important arts impresario in history, a man with the gift of attracting and inspiring the greatest artists of his time. And that time is running out. The year is 1929 and the man is Sergei Diaghilev. A no-talent hustler or a visionary? Art-addicted, dilettante magpie or genius inventor of the modern? Diaghilev lived by one rule: never repeat. Don't look back. Always look forward. Diaghilev is where the future was. Simon Callow website
