Le Spectre de la Rose was based on a poem by Théophile Gautier and featured Karsavina and Nijinsky, two of the most celebrated dancers of the time. Choreographed by Mikhail Fokine, the ballet told the story of a young girl, danced by Karsavina, who falls asleep in her bedroom after a ball. She dreams of dancing with a rose, played by Nijinsky, that she had been holding in her hand.
