Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Le Spectre de la Rose is a ballet of the Ballets Russes based on a poem by Th ophile Gautier. The music, by Carl Maria von Weber, was his 1819 piano piece Invitation to the Dance, in the 1841 orchestration by Hector Berlioz. Choreography was by Michel Fokine and set and costume design by L on Bakst. It premiered on April 19, 1911 by the Ballets Russes in the Th tre de Monte Carlo. The story is about a debutante who falls asleep after her first ball. She dreams that she is dancing with the rose that she had been holding in her hand. Her dream ends when the rose escapes through the window. The dancers at the original performance were Vaslav Nijinsky as the Rose and Tamara Karsavina as the Girl.show more
