Le Halte de cavalerie

CREDITS
Music by Ivan Armsheimer
Libretto and choreography by Marius Petipa
Revived by Pyotr Gusev
Set and Costume Design: Vyacheslav Okunev

Premiere at the Mikhailovsky Theatre: 30 April 1975

Le Halte de cavalerie (The Cavalry Halt) is one of the short ballets by Marius Petipa, considered a brilliant choreographer¡¯s ¡°jest¡±. The dazzling compositional mastery of the mature Petipa, who created the ballet between Swan Lake and Raymonda, is a delight. Another attraction of Le Halte de §ãavalerie is that character dance is given equal status to classical pieces.

Petipa tells us a simple story about cavalrymen who visit a village of ¡°ballet-dancing peasants¡± to pursue their amorous adventures. A rapid succession of comic scenes is performed with clarity of a clock-work mechanism. The ballet is not about deep feelings. The halt is brief; time does not wait.
Le Halte de cavalerie was set to the score by Ivan Armsheimer, created when he was a soloist of the Mikhailovsky Orchestra. Armsheimer¡¯s music didn¡¯t mean to be modern or sophisticated but vivid and teasing, matching the naivety of the plot.

The ballet premiered at the Mariinsky Theatre in 1896. In 1919, Petipa¡¯s production was revived there by Alexander Shiryaev, but in Soviet times hussar colonels were frowned upon, and Le Halte de cavalerie was forgotten. It was not until 1968 when Pyotr Gusev, a famous connoisseur of classical choreography, delighted audiences by reconstructing Petipa¡¯s little masterpiece.

SYNOPSIS

Peasant girls Maria and Teresa are in love with Peter. He is flattered by the attention of Teresa, the prettiest girl in the village, but is also secretly drawn to Maria.

A bugle sounds, heralding the arrival in the village of a hussar regiment. Their colonel demands billets for all in the homes of the villagers. Peter tries to object and is arrested. With the help of her friends, Maria distracts his hussar guards and saves her sweetheart.

Teresa attracts the officers¡¯ attention best of all. The cornet, the captain and the colonel himself all try flirting with her. Teresa rejects their attentions, jokingly telling the other villagers of the amorous approaches of all three officers. Meanwhile Peter and Maria have made their wedding plans. Teresa tries to stop them, but the colonel puts an end to the quarrel by blessing the marriage. Now Teresa has no reason to object to the colonel¡¯s attentions.

But duty calls, and soon the trumpeter signals for them to assemble. The hussars leave their temporary halt ¡ª to the delight of the village lads, who have been completely forgotten by the fickle village beauties.
