These dancers came together from three different companies in 1952 as part of a touring group assembled by Jacob’s Pillow. Grantzeva had been with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and Polajenko had performed with the International Ballet de Marquis de Cuevas, while McWilliams had been with Ballet Theatre. Among the works they performed was this classical showcase created especially for them by Antony Tudor. When it premiered in June of 1952, the choreography was attributed to the fictitious Vispitin, a name concocted by Tudor because this work was so different from his other work. But when it was performed during two additional weeks of the same season, Tudor received credit. More than 60 years later, New York Theatre Ballet revived this ballet from a silent film of the original cast.
