Francis Poulenc - 1924
from Selected correspondence 1915-1963 / Francis Poulenc, page 70:
Yes, Les Biches went well. I cannot find words to do justice to the beauty of Nijinska's work. She really is a creature of genius. The whole thing was danced so perfectly. And special praise for Nemchinova, adorable in the starring role.
