Gluck — Iphigenie en Aulide, Allegretto-Menuetto-Andante-Passe Pied-Air Gai (The Maidens see the Greek fleet in the distance and dance for joy of the sight)

This lively dance is often performed as a duet and the movement closely resembles the Gavotte from the English Suite No. 3 of Bach. Dancers criss-cross the stage along strong diagonals and find each other for the ensuing duet.

Notes

Barbara Kane

The Allegretto is a playful dance by the Maidens of Chalcis. Looking back two dancers playfully cross diagonally across the stage as though playing a game of dare and then share moments of delightful dancing together.
