Article Les Tentations de la Bergère, ou l'Amour Vainqueur (ballet in 1 act)

Music by Michel de Montéclair, arranged and orchestrated by Henri Casadesus; sets, costumes, and curtain by Juan Gris; choreography by Bronislava Nijinska; premiere on 3 January 1924, Théâtre de Monte-Carlo, Monte Carlo. Unlike similar ballets, produced by Diaghilev that used commissioned scores, the composer for this ballet lived between 1667 and 1737.

Les Tentations de la Bergère and Les Fâcheux were two works produced by the Ballets Russes during the 1920s that focused on themes related to eighteenth-century France. These productions were rooted in France’s post-World War I fascination with bygone monarchies and court life.
