8.1. VALSE



Music: Carl Maria von Weber

Choreography: By George Balanchine.

Premiere: State Theater of Opera and Ballet (formerly Maryinsky), Petrograd, April 30, 1922 [?]

Cast: Alexandra Danilova, Mikhail Mikhailov, George Balanchine

Note: There is a program for this performance, but no indication whether or not it was a premiere. The dance was included with others under the overall title 'Divertissement,' presented with Giselle. Very possibly it is the same as Invitation to the Dance [34].
