The Pharaoh’s Daughter is a classic ballet choreographed by Marius Petipa and originally staged in 1862 in Russia. This romantic and exotic ballet unfolds in two acts and a prologue, set in ancient Egypt, and is known for its stunning visual elements, intricate choreography, and captivating narrative. The story follows Lord Wilson, an Englishman visiting Egypt, who dreams of the exotic and mysterious East. As he falls asleep in a museum, he is transported to ancient Egypt, where he meets the beautiful and enigmatic Aspicia, the Pharaoh’s daughter. Their love story is fraught with adventure as they navigate palace intrigues and encounter mythological figures like the God of the Nile and the God of the Underworld.


A well-known figure in the realm of 19th-century ballet music was Cesare Pugni (1802–1870). Pugni, who was born in Genoa, Italy, showed promise as a musician at a young age and underwent professional piano and composition instruction. His work was mostly connected to Russia, where he was the chief composer for the St. Petersburg-based Imperial Ballet. Pugni’s extensive work, which included writing music for several well-known choreographers including Marius Petipa and Jules Perrot, made a significant contribution to the art of ballet.
