Program Notes

The ballet The Red Poppy was written in 1927 (revised 1949). It deals with an uprising on board Chinese ship and the successful intervention of Russian sailors. The Russian Sailors Dance is the best-known excerpt from the ballet, and is founded on the popular Russian folk tune title Yablochka (little apple). The dance takes the form of a series of variations on this striking song. Interestingly enough, this folk tune was used both as a revolutionary and counter-revolutionary song throughout Russian history.
