ABOUT THE BALLET

In 1857, Petipa created a new concert pas de deux for the benefit performance of the Italian Prima Ballerina Amalia Ferraris, for which he partnered the ballerina. Petipa choreographed the pas de deux to new music arranged by Cesare Pugni from an air taken from Nicolò Paganini’s piece for violin known as Carnevale di Venezia (Op.10). The pas de deux was titled as Le Carnaval de Venise. When Petipa first revived Satanella in 1866, Le Carnaval de Venise was interpolated into the third act of the ballet, where it was retained for many years.

Today, the Satanella pas de deux is a staple of the classical ballet repertoire and the ballet competition circuit. The pas de deux is featured prominently in the celebrated documentary The Children of Theatre Street, which is hosted by Princess Grace of Monaco and profiles students attending the Vaganova Choreographic Institute.

More history about this variation and Pas de Deux can be found on the Petipa website

ABOUT THE COMPOSER

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.
