Music by Igor Stravinsky, after Giambattista Pergolesi and other composers; sets, costumes, and curtain by Pablo Picasso; choreography by Léonide Massine; premiere on 15 May 1920, Théâtre National de l’Opéra, Paris. Italy was one of Diaghilev’s favorite destinations for inspiration and the ballet Pulcinella was the second that resulted from his visits. Massine had also visited Italy and, after reading through Commedia dell’arte scripts, he based his choreography on the story of The Four Pulcinellas. The original cast included Massine and Tamara Karsavina.
