18. SPANISH DANCE



Music: Probably by Alexander Glazounov (from Raymonda, Op. 57, produced 1898).

Choreography: By George Balanchine.

Premiere: June 1, 1923, Young Ballet, Alexandrovsky Hall, Duma, Petrograd.

Cast: Nina Stukolkina, Mikhail Mikhailov.

Note: Although Spanish Dance does not appear on the poster announcing the first Evening of the Young Ballet, Yuri Slonimsky quotes Vera Kostrovitskaya's recollection that it was presented at the concert (Slonimsky, p. 63). A work called Adagio, with Balanchine choreography to the music of Glazounov, appears on the announcement poster, but no other mention has been found.
