Choreographed by Jean Börlin to the music of Darius Milhaud, with a libretto by Blaise Cendrars and stage sets by Fernand Léger, La Création du monde, a work from the Ballets suédois, was first presented in 1923 in Paris
The passenger vessel ‘Neraida’ was built as ‘Laurana’ in 1939 at the Cantieri Navali Del Quarnaro Shipyards in the then Italian city of Fiume (today Rijeka, Croatia). Ten years later, she was purchased by John Latsis and, after restoration works, she was routed in the Argosaronic Gulf line, renamed ‘Neraida’ (which means fairy in Greek).
