Casella's Ballet La Giara, written in 1924, is described as a ' Choreographic Comedy'—a Ballet in one Act, based on a novel by Pirandello. The plot concerns a very large and handsome jar of oil owned by a rich and crusty farmer. By an accident it is broken. An old hump-backed artist in the mending of broken pottery comes along and undertakes to repair it. To fix the broken piece in place he has to get inside the jar. When it is fixed he cannot get out through the neck, because of his hump ! The owner of the jar will not break it to release the poor hunchback, who is left disconsolate inside it, puffing his pipe.
Night comes on. Encouraged by Nela, the farmer's daughter, peasants come in to drink the hunchback's health. They become lively, and dance round the jar. The farmer appears, angry at the noise, and vents his annoyance in a kick at the jar. It breaks, freeing its inhabitant, and in a final dance the peasants celebrate his release, while the discomfited farmer retires fuming.
