Monet, Cezanne, Degas, Renoir - these names are well-known to every art connoisseur. What inspired them and how did they create their famous works of art?

Chelyabinsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre
Chelyabinsk Opera and Ballet Theatre tells the story of a mysterious woman and a provocative actress and dancer Ida Rubinstein. Born into one of the wealthiest families, Ida devoted her life to art causing utter astonishment among her social rank. At that patriarchal time, the term actress was equivalent to a courtesan. The ballet by Chelyabinsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre is not about a particular period in Ida’s life. It is about Ida’s internal struggle for being who she really wanted to be.
