Marius Petipa, one of the greatest ballet choreographers of the century, met his first success with the ballet The Pharaoh's daughter. Did everything to please the public romantismo.Lugar exotic (Ancient Egypt), impressive figures, scenes of large groups, pantomimes, pas de deux and solos at will. Smash everything that was in that ballet fell in love the wagon.

Choreographer Pierre Lacote accepted the mission to rebuild the daughter of Pharaoh, ballet has been lost in the twentieth century. Music Cesare Pugni there is a reduction for piano, already the choreography was more complicated. The focus was on the memories of dancers who danced the ballet in the first decades of the twentieth century and used his creativity in several parts.
The ballet The Pharaoh's Daughter has 204 shows between 1864 to 1904 on stage in Czarist Russia. These figures attest to its popularity. But for reasons unknown and unexplained, it fell into oblivion. His last appearance was in the distant year of 1926.
The choreography Lacote follows the tradition of the great Russian ballets. Keep the spirit and style of Petipa. Variations and soils of difficulty attached to numbers with group scenes. All this aims to show the technical mastery of the dancers. Technique not only excites and Lacote know it. His dance is smooth and balanced. Alterna moments of lightness with strength, thrilling the viewer. The numbers follow the tradition of the nineteenth century, Lacote not invent fashion, runs away from the modern choreography. He knows he is facing a romantic ballet and fits him. Your work is brilliant, riding a century ballet in his face the date of his debut. Everything is great: scenarios, number of dancers and colors. Make a single concession reduces the time the ballet of four for just over two hours.
