Respighi was first made known to us in this country by the ballet La Boutique fantasque. The music is taken from some of the light pieces, chiefly written for pianoforte, which Rossini composed in his last years, and Respighi has arranged them to make a delightfully fresh and dainty ballet. On the stage the dolls in the shop come to life and dance. The ballet consists of a Cossack Dance, a Nocturne, a Mazurka, an Italian Tarantella, a slow Waltz, a boisterous Can-Can, and a Galop.
