Set to a waltz and four mazurkas by Frédéric Chopin, the plotless classical character pas de deux was created by Jerome Robbins for a Gala evening for the Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center at the Metropolitan Opera House on May 9, 1976. The piece was first performed by Natalia Makarova and Mikhail Baryshnikov and staged for American Ballet Theatre by Isabel Guerin.
