Notes & Reviews:
'Le Train Bleu' is an operetta danse of a chic and flippant society. Jean Cocteau, who wrote the scenario, mockingly celebrates the cult of open air life, fine bodies and sport. 'Le Tricorne' is a Spanish from start to finish. Picasso, a native of Andalusia, created sets, costumes, and a stage curtain, which evoke the atmosphere of the ballet by means of a typically Spanish scene. An accompanying documentary, 'The Story of a Marriage', traces Picasso's involvement with designs for ballet.
