Chopiniana is a short, non-narrative ballet blanc. Its original choreography was by Michel Fokine, with music by Frédéric Chopin orchestrated by Alexander Glazunov. The ballet, often described as a "romantic reverie", was indeed the first ballet ever to be simply that. It has has no plot, but instead consists of many white-clad sylphs dancing in the moonlight with the poet or young man dressed in white tights and a black top. (from Wikipedia)
