Misc. Comments

For a ballet performance at Elsinore Theatre on 16 December 1846, August Bournonville choreographed a Spanish-flavoured solo dance scene which, on the poster announcing the performance, was entitled Maritana (Spanish Gypsy dance). The dance piece consisted of two Spanish dance episodes in the form of an initial Bolero and a concluding Jaleo. The success in Elsinore encouraged Bournonville straightaway to make use of Lumbye’s music once again in the expanded divertissement with the new title Maritana, Divertissement in the Form of a Carnival Scene. This version, contained an introductory Waltz and a Finale Gallop in addition to the original Bolero and Jaleo.
