"In the '30s," Tatiana Leskova remembered, "there was the smell of blood in the air." And that was what inspired Leonide Massine to create "Les Presages," a groundbreaking 1933 work for the Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo that reflected the era's turmoil, exuding doomful between-the-wars portents. Leskova joined the company in 1939 and was cast in corps roles in all four movements of the ballet, eventually taking the lead role of Frivolity in the third movement.
