La Vivandière is a classical ballet that was first choreographed by Arthur Saint-Léon in 1844. The ballet is set in a military camp during the Napoleonic era and tells the story of a vivandière, a young woman who serves as a canteen vendor for the French army. The vivandière, often portrayed as a spirited and charismatic character, becomes embroiled in a romantic tale with a soldier.


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. His works for the renowned ballets “Esmeralda” and “La Fille du Danube,” among others, are still performed in ballet theatres all over the world, upholding his reputation as a composer of ballet of lasting importance.
