The ballet The Legend of Joseph, dedicated to Diaghilev, was composed in 1913 and first performed a year later at the Paris Opera. The scenario, based on the Bible story of Joseph and Potiphar's wife, was by Hugo von Hofmannsthal and Count Kessler. The choreography was by Fokine and Leonide Massine took the part of Joseph.

of Dante Alighieri
The third cantica of the Divine
Comedy, translated into English triple rhyme by Laurence Binyon
A reading in six parts
Produced by Peter Duval Smith
Part 5 (Cantos 23-27): In the Eighth Heaven of the Fixed Stars the Triumph of Christ is made visible to Dante; from the innumerable company of the Blessed, Beatrice calls forth three of the Apostles, each of whom examines Dante on the subject of that cardinal virtue which he especially represents-thus Dante is questioned by St. Peter about Faith, by St. James about Hope, and by St. John about Love; the spirit of Adam tells Dante the story of the Fall; St. Peter speaks bitterly of the corrupt Popes who have lately held the holy office which he began; Dante and Beatrice are wafted up into the Primum Mobile, the Ninth and Uppermost Heaven of Paradise; Beatrice makes lament for the sorry heart of man.
