GRADUATION BALL
(Ballet in one act)
Choreography: David Lichine Scenery: Aleksandar Augustincic
Music: Johann Strauss Costumes: Danica Dedijer
Staged to the original choreography Ballet Master: Bozic Lisak by Ivan Kramar
First production: Original Ballet Russe, Theatre Royal, Sidney, Australia, February 28, 1940.
The setting is the ballroom of a young girls' school in Vienna on the eve of graduation. The girls are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the cadets from the graduating class of a nearby military academy. The Headmistress is as excited as the girls: she busdes around in a last-minute flurry of activity and preparation. When the cadets arrive, the Ball commences and soon all are dancing in delirious happiness. The evening draws to a close and final good-byes are said. The pleasant evening seems to have been an all-too-short (but happy) dream.

About the Artists
The Zagreb Grand Ballet, long known in this country to connoisseurs of dance through enthusiastic reports from abroad, is making its long-awaited American debut tour this season. Founded in 1870, this Yugoslavian troupe is a major wing of the Croatian National Theatre of Zagreb and one of Europe's oldest and most highly respected ballet ensembles. Although established as an important supplement to Zagreb's opera company, the ballet artists soon established themselves as a separate entity and began offering their own dance presentations. Thus, their individual history dates from as early as 1876.
Over the years, the Zagreb Ballet has attracted major choreographers and dancers, and has staged many world premieres of major new works. Its exciting repertoire ranges from the legendary ballets of Fokine, Petipa, and Lichine, to the major choreographers who have followed them. Tours have taken the ensemble to Italy, Germany, Austria, Holland, Greece, Great Britain, France, Czechoslovakia, the Soviet Union, and Japan.
Like England's Royal Ballet, which alternates its schedule with the Royal Opera performances in Covent Garden, today's Zagreb Ballet adheres to a similar operation. A state-supported institution, this company enjoys the privileges of other major ensembles in enhancing its roster with the finest dancers and the most talented and imaginative choreographers and designers -resulting in a company of the highest artistic merit.
