6. WALTZ



Music: By Riccardo Drigo.

Choreography: By George Balanchine.

Premiere: April 9, 1922, Theater (Ballet) School graduation performance, State Theater of Opera and Ballet (formerly Maryinsky), Petrograd.

Cast: Anna Vorobieva.

Note: A Drigo Waltz was performed by Alexandra Danilova as a member of the Principal Dancers of the Russian State Ballet on the summer tour of Germany in 1924. It may have been this composition, but more probably was the waltz from Petipa's short ballet The Lovely Pearl (Drigo), which was in the repertory of the Young Ballet.
