Ondine, ou La naïade by Cesare Pugni


''La naïade et le pêcheur'' at Peterhof Palace. July, 1851.]]'''''Ondine, ou La naïade''''' is a ballet in three acts and six scenes with choreography by Jules Perrot, music by Cesare Pugni and a libretto inspired by the novel ''Undine'' by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué. Pugni dedicated his score to the Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Augusta, a long-time balletomane and patron of the arts in London. Whilst the original London production used the title ''Ondine, ou La naïade'', Perrot staged a revival of the ballet under the title, '''''''La naïade et le pêcheur''''''', a title which was used for all subsequent productions of the ballet.
