PAS DES DEESSES

Mile. Lucilc Grahn Mile. Fanny Ccrrito
Mile. Marie Taglioni M. Arthur Saint-Leon
"Pas dcs Decsses" was inspired by a Romantic lithograph of 1846 by the artist Bouvier. At the beginning of the ballet, the dancers arc seen in the pose of this famous work of art. Each variation shows off the qualities made famous by the quartet of great 19th century dancers: the languorous Grahn, the darting Cerrito, and the floating Taglioni -all magnificently supported by the gallant Saint-Leon. The air of competition among the three ballerinas echoes the delicate rivalry which actually existed among these celebrated Romantic dancers.
Robert Joffrey choreographed "Pas des Dcesscs" in 1954 as a period piece to selected nocturnes, rondos, and waltzes by John Field (1782-1837), one of the foremost composers and piano virtuosos of the day, who originated the name and style of the "nocturne."
This ballet has been reconstructed by Maria Grandy from the Lababotation score by agreement with the Dance Notation Bureau, Inc., New York City.
