When Queen Catherine of Medici got married with King Henry II of France, ballet entered France and was given a new breath . In 1669, the Academie Royale de Musique (ancestor of the Opera de Paris) was founded under the reign of Louis XIV where ballet flourished and was associated to opera’s music and singers in such a theatrical and proper costumes identity. From 1787 to 1827, Ballet was propelled to a new dynamic throughout Europe with the talented French choreographer Pierre Gardel who created masterpieces as Psyche (1790), la Dansomanie (1800) and Paul et Virginie (1806). In the 1830’s, the prominent Italian ballerina Marie Taglioni has permanently marked ballet by her grace and delicateness and was among the first to wear the famous tutu while she performed in la Sylphide. In the late 19th century, ballet center of gravity moved to St-Petersbourg in Russia with the favors of the tsar Nicolas II. From 1870 to 1903, Russian ballet was dominated by the French dancer and choreographer Marius Petipa who contributed to launch the premises of the ballet classic with pieces like the Sleeping beauty (1890), the Nutcracker (1892) and the Swan Lake (1895) . In 1909, the Russian Serge Dyagilev introduced the company of the Ballets Russes in France revitalizing ballet there. Dyagilev has worked on combining different artistic categories with ballet dancing as painting, music and theatrical drama. The Ballets Russes hosted dancers of long-lasting influence like the sensational Russian Vaslav Nijinsky who has seen pieces as Scheherazade (1910), Le Spectre de la Rose (1911) and Petrushka (1911) especially created for him by Michel Fokine.
