Description

Les Sylphides

Les Sylphides is composed of a suite of dances in the romantic atmosphere of a moonlit park. The sylphides, magical figures, dance with the "poet" in search of the ideal.


Fairy Doll

The Curtain rises on a toy shop where the proprietor is mending a doll’s head, various customers and trades people arrive. An English family, a Scottish family a child with a broken doll, they are shown Ma-Ma- Pa-Pa dolls, Chinese and Spanish dolls as well as Tyroleans, harlequins, drumming bunny dolls and Finally the Fairy Doll.

The English family are enraptured by the Fairy Doll and place an order to buy her and arrange for her to be delivered. They leave and the shop closes for the night.

As midnight strikes the shop magically comes alive and all the dolls with pulcinellas playing tiny cymbals dance the Fairy Doll waltz followed by a triumphal march with massed battalions of drumming bunny dolls and all join in a sparkling gallop gathering around the Fairy Doll.

Disturbed by the noise the shopkeeper now rushes in but finds everything in order, he stands puzzled as the ballet ends with a tableau of dolls around their fairy queen.
