The Fairy Doll is a whimsical ballet that unfolds the enchanting tale of a young girl named Franziska and her magical toy doll. Composed by Josef Bayer and first performed in Vienna in 1888, the ballet transports audiences into a world where dreams come alive. In this captivating narrative, Franziska’s cherished doll transforms into a life-sized fairy, and together, they embark on a fantastical journey through an enchanted forest, encountering fairies, elves, and woodland creatures.


Josef Bayer (1852-1913) was an Austrian composer celebrated for his contributions to the world of light classical music during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Born in Vienna, Bayer demonstrated prodigious musical talent from a young age, and he went on to study at the renowned Vienna Conservatory. His compositions are characterized by their melodic charm, whimsical character, and delightful orchestration, often embodying a distinctly Viennese spirit. Bayer’s enduring legacy is particularly associated with his creation of the enchanting ballet, “The Fairy Doll,” which continues to captivate audiences with its timeless allure.
