This chapter describes Ida Rubinstein's starring roles in Serge Diaghilev's ballets Cléopâtre and Schéhérazade. It also considers Ida's relationship with Comte Robert de Montesquiou-Fezensac, the French Oscar Wilde, which enabled her to look beyond the world of Diaghilev and the fatal woman she had incarnated for him.

Keywords:   Ida Rubinstein, Serge Diaghilev, Schéhérazade, Cléopâtre, Robert de Montesquiou-Fezensac
