This image commemorates the 1919 South American tour of Anna Pavlova's dance troupe, which included performances of the Persian-inspired ballet "La Péri," originally created by Theophile Gautier for the great Italian ballerina Carlotta Grisi. Hubert Stowitts re-conceived the ballet in 1917 with new choreography and the costumes seen here.
