Ida Rubinstein,Le Martyre de Saint Sébastien 1911Liberetto by Gabrielle D’Annunzio Music by Claude Debussy Choreography by Mikhail Fokine Costumes and Decor by Léon Bakst
She hangs, pierced by the arrows, against the tree, like the wreck of some gallant ship entangled in its rigging…Her armour aglow, her legs scorched, her toes seared, she treads the red embers as lightly as though they were, in fact, a red carpet fashioned of the miraculous lilies in the blue arcades beyond…From the beginning where she suggests a tall stately torch, to the end…she is but a great flame dying in the wax.
Jean Cocteau, describing Ida Rubinstein’s performance in Martyrdom of St. Sebastian (taken from Sisters of Salome by Tori Bentley)
