On its first U.S. tour since the death of Diaghilev, the Ballet Russes performed at the St. James Theater in New York in 1934 with a repertoire of 22 ballets. With the company were dancers Leon Woizikovsky, the male lead; the young Tamara Toumanova, whom critics called the new Pavlova; and David Lichine, a company dancer who performed in Stravinsky's 'Petrouchka.'
