Pas de Quatre and Degas Rehearsal
Dougherty Arts Center Theater
Austin, TX
Share this event:


Degas Rehearsal, an original ballet, brings to life the famous painting by Edgar Degas.

Pas de Quatre is a ballet divertissement choreographed by Jules Perrot in 1845, on the suggestion of Benjamin Lumley, Director at His Majesty's Theatre, to music composed by Cesare Pugni.  On the night it premiered in London, (12 July 1845) it caused a sensation with the critics and the public alike. The reason for this was that it brought together, on one stage, the four greatest ballerinas of the time:  Lucile Grahn, Carlotta Grisi, Fanny Cerrito and Marie Baglioni. Pas de Quatre captured the essence of the Romantic style as the ballerinas danced with demure lightness, delicacy, and poise.

The steps demand that each area of classical ballet technique is executed. These areas include adagio movements, petite allegro, grand allegro, fast footwork, graceful changes of position, and the elegant and fluid arm movements that have become a signature element of Pas de Quatre. Each ballerina has an individual variation, which are performed in succession between an opening and finale that are danced by all the ballerinas together. These variations were choreographed for the ballerina premiering in each role, and were designed to display the best features of each.
