Note For ensemble, an ironic ballet 'conducted' by an electric ring master who is 'switched' on by a ballerina at the beginning, then off, and carried offstage inert at the end. The scenario was inspired by Stravinsky's fantasy about Diaghilev as ringmaster when creating the Polka used here (see Stravinsky's Chroniques de ma vie). Revivals, Rome (1944), Rio de Janeiro (1954), Palermo (1959).
