Prince Serge Wolkonsky (1860 - 1937) was an influential Russian theatrical worker, one of the first Russian proponents of eurhythmics, pupil and friend of Émile Jaques-Dalcroze, and creator of an original system of actor's training that included both expressive gesture and expressive speech.In 1899 Wolkonsky became Director of the Imperial Theatres, the post for which he is most remembered. Although he held the position only until 1902, he achieved a great deal; Serge Diaghilev was his immediate assistant, and Wolkonsky entrusted him with the publication of the Annual of the Imperial Theatres in 1900. New names appeared in the theaters, such as painters Alexandre Benois, Konstantin Somov, and Léon Bakst. In this second part of his two-volume reminiscences he discusses his mother Princess Elisabeth Wolkonsky, his time at the Imperial Theatres, the Russian Revolution and its consequences, and the ruin of the Russia he loved.
