Part II

Chopiniana – Les Sylphides

Chopiniana, was first staged in St Petersburg on 10 Feburary 1907 Choreographed by Michel Fokine with music of Frédéric Chopin orchestrated by Alexander Glazunov. Fokine reshaped the work for two years prior to its 1909 staging as Les Sylphides for Serge Diaghilev’s Ballet Russe at the Chatelet Theatre in Paris by legendary ballerina Pavlova. The work continued to evolve, but retained its essence as a one-act ballet evoking the Romantic spirit of the sylph in an abstract work. Les Sylphides is often confused with La Sylphide, another ballet of similar name but however the two ballets are unrelated.
