ULTIMATE GUEST LIST

On 13 June 1923, Igor Stravinsky’s ballet Les Noces opened in Paris. Waiting up for the reviews, the cast and crew headed to a barge on the Seine, where famed socialites of the day Gerald and Sara Murphy were hosting the after-party. Joining them that night were songwriter Cole Porter; artist Pablo Picasso (who rearranged the centrepieces); author Jean Cocteau (who ran around shouting that the boat was sinking); poet Tristan Tzara and the composer himself, Stravinsky (who switched the place cards around).
