Company bills/receipts

Scope and Content

A large collection of receipts for expenses incurred by the Ballets Russes for everything from shoes and costumes, to pianists, rehearsal rooms, props and seamstresses.


The bills and receipts have been arranged in chronological order. In many cases groups of receipts had been pinned together and where this is the case their groupings have been retained. During the operation of the Ballets Russes some bills had been ordered and numbered, possibly by Serge Grigoriev, and this order has been retained or reconstructed where possible.
