The ballet Ode, a modernist experiment, was choreo­graphed by Léonide Massine, set to a commissioned musical score by Nicolas Nabokov. The costumes and décor were designed by Pavel Tchelitchew and Pierre Charbonnier. A notable element of the produc­tion was the stage lighting, which was designed by Charbon­nier.
