Galop

Alternative title: Final Galop
Choreographer: Tamara Karsavina
Composer: Johann Strauss
Rambert premiere: 23 Jun 1930, Marie Rambert Dancers, Lyric Hammersmith, London
Work note: The world premiere details are unknown. In June 1930, 'Galop' was danced as a duet. Later in 1930 and again in 1931, the evening ended with a 'Final Galop', also to Strauss music. The choreography of 'Final Galop' is not credited, but it is possibly the same work.
