The Dallas show (the only U.S. venue) contains more than 140 works including the centerpiece of the exhibition, a display of costumes created for the ballet Aleko, set to Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio in A Minor. The costumes have not been seen in America since a 1942 performance by the Ballet Theatre of New York.

Most of the ceramics in the exhibition have never been on view before, the museum says.
