Le Pavillion d'Armide was created by Benois for Diaghilev's Ballet Russes. It was first performed in 1907 with Nijinsky in the role of Armida's favourite slave and Anna Pavlova as Armida the beautiful sorceress. The ballet set here is recreated from Benois original design and the figures of Nijinsky and Armida from his costume designs.
