Ballet “Chopiniana” also called “Les Sylphides” one act ballet, non-specific content that focuses on factors that evoke the vitality of romanticism.

“Chopiniana” was first staged in St Petersburg pm 10th February 1907 choreographed by Micheal Fokine with music of F. 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 Theater 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.
