Quick Reference

Ballet in one act with choreography and libretto by Massine, music by Lecocq (arr. Richard Mohaupt), and designs by Mstislav Doboujinsky. Premiered 10 Oct. 1943 (as Mademoiselle Angot) by Ballet Theatre at the Metropolitan Opera House, New York, with Massine, Nora Kaye, André Eglevsky, and Rosella Hightower. The ballet is based on Charles Lecocq's 1872 comic opera La Fille de Madame Angot which portrays a group of haplessly mis-matched lovers. It was revived by Massine for Sadler's Wells Ballet in 1947, with new music arranged by Gordon Jacob and designs by André Derain, and a cast that included Fonteyn, Shearer, Grant, and Somes. Australian Ballet took it into its repertoire in 1971.
