A Russian-born ballet dancer and actress, Lopokova "participated in Serge Diaghilev's 1910 Saison Russe in Paris, achieving great personal success in the Bluebird pas de deux and as Tamara Karsavina's replacement in Le Carnaval and The Firebird... In early 1916, [she] rejoined Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in New York and quickly became its leading star, adding Le Spectre de la Rose, Petrouchka, and Les Papillons to her repertory... An artist of graet independence who was not afraid to stand up to "Big Serge," as she called Diaghilev, Lopokova was one of the era's best-loved ballerinas..."
