The romantic adventures — and comic misadventures — of Cléonte, Moliére's 17th century dancing master, provide the impetus for this elaborately costumed ballet set in a fashionable Parisian mansion.
The current production is Balanchine's third version of this ballet, which was revived for performance during the Balanchine Celebration. Previous versions were staged by the Ballets Russe de Monte Carlo in 1932 and 1944.
