Dance comedy in two acts

There are two reasons why this ballet, whose first version dates back to the eve of the French Revolution, is a unique one. First of all, it is one of the oldest stories that is still danced today, and since its world premiere it has been successfully staged by many different choreographers, with the 1960 version by the masterful Englishman Sir Frederick Ashton being one of the most outstanding examples. Second, while the great majority of ballets deal with dramatic events, this one presented the viewer with a much merrier dance spectacle – and not just any kind of dancing, either! Unfolding around a farm, Ashton's choreography couples its demanding dancing with an abundance of humour arising from the characters and comic situations.
