Paquita

Paquita is one of the most celebrated displays of technical fireworks from the old Imperial Russian Ballet. It was originally staged by Marius Petipa at the Paris Opera in 1846 and is embraced by many professional companies as a showcase for the grand classical style of Petipa’s choreography. Paquita is the story of a well-born young Spanish girl who is stolen by a band of gypsies and tells of her adventures before she is reunited with her family at a grand ball.
