Rubinstein danced the part of Zobeide in Scheherazade with Ballet Russes in 1910. It was choreographered by Michel Fokine with costumes by co-author Léon Bakst.
It was admired at the time for its racy sensuality and sumptuous staging. These days, though, it is rarely performed. It is considered too much of a pantomine and it's then-fashionable Orientalism appears dated.
