Notes
Statement of responsibility: Lith. by B. F. Smith, Jr. N.Y.
The print, probably used as a poster, may represent the enchanted palace in act II of Perrot's Faust, the ballet chosen for the United States debut of the Ronzani Company, Sept. 16, 1857.
The costumes and positions of the three principals at center are identical with those in Smyth's wood engraving of Cerrito, Grahn, and Saint-Léon in Perrot's Pas des déesses, published in The Illustrated London News, August 1, 1846 (*MGZFA Pas 1).
Cf. *MGTI New York Public Library. Dance Collection. Images of the dance, 1965, p. 74-75. Reproduction and commentary.
