Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Les noces by Igor Stravinsky, is a dance cantata, or ballet with vocalists. The ballet was premiered on June 13, 1923 at the Th tre de la Ga t in Paris, by the Ballets Russes with choreography by Bronislava Nijinska. The orchestra was conducted by Ernest Ansermet. Stravinsky first conceived of writing the ballet in 1913 and completed it in short score by October 1917. During a long gestation period its orchestration changed dramatically. At first conceived for an expanded symphony orchestra similar to that of The Rite of Spring, it went through numerous variations, including at one point the use of synchronised roll-operated instruments, including the Pianola, but he abandoned that version when it was only partially completed, owing to the tardiness of the Parisian piano firm of Pleyel et Cie in constructing the two-keyboard cimbaloms, known subsequently as luth als.show more
