Ballet in one act with choreography by Ashton, music by Meyerbeer (arr. Lambert), and designs by William Chappell. Premiered 16 Feb. 1937 by the Vic-Wells Ballet at Sadler's Wells Theatre in London, with H. Turner, May, Brae, Mary Honer, Elizabeth Miller, Fonteyn, and Helpmann. The diversions of a party of ice skaters are presented in comic, virtuoso choreography. The music comes from Meyerbeer's opera Le Prophète (in which there was a divertissement featuring a skater's ballet) and L'étoile du Nord. The ballet has also entered the repertories of Ballet Theatre (1946), Royal Winnipeg Ballet (1966), Australian Ballet (1970), and the Joffrey Ballet (1977).
