Which of the following ballets was not composed by Igor Stravinsky?
The ballet, "The Afternoon of a Faun", was choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky for the Ballets Russes, and it was first performed in the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris in May 1912. Both the music and the ballet were inspired by the poem "L'Après-midi d'un faune" by Stéphane Mallarmé. It was made a symphonic poem for orchestra by composer, Claude Debussy; the music at the time ran approximately 10 minutes in duration. It was composed in 1894 and first performed in Paris in December 1894. Gustave Doret was the conductor.
"The Afternoon of a Faun" is about the reveries of a faun and a real or imagined encounter with nymphs. In 1912, Nijinsky presented his famous ballet, drawing his ideas from many sources including Greek sculpture and relevant paintings on Greek vases.
