Description: This ballet was created for "Salute to Italy," a New York City Ballet program celebrating the 100th anniversary of Italy's unification. Balanchine felt he needed a "cheerful and sunny work" to offset the more somber tone of the other ballets on the program, which included La Sonnambula.
