Ravel's ' 'La Valse' is a very brilliant exposition of the spirit of the Strauss waltz, the harmonic treatment of which is certainly not without a touch of cynicism. The book and the choreography are by Bronislava Nijinska and the setting and costumes by Alexandre Benois.
The action takes place in a magnincent ballroom characteristic of the Third Empire.
