Serge Diaghilev brought Anna Pavlova to Paris. Diaghilev signed her for his first Paris performance May 19, 1909. Diaghilev thought her appearance would help to ensure his success. Her time with the Ballets Russes was brief, as she left the company because of Diaghilev's preference for the male dancers.
