This ballet is dedicated to Mrae AndersonIvantzova, former ballerina of the Bolshoi Theatre Moscow, from whom I learned the unique 19th Century RussianSpanish style in which it is
created. Thus this divertissement is a look back with affection.

A pas de deux in the Romantic style. The Ballerina and Premier Danseur remain on stage through the complete performance, although there are variations for each of them, which is a departure from the conventional pas de deux. Humorous bits of mime as well as virtuoso sections make a very light and joyous work.
