Information for Scottish Ballet - Kenneth MacMillan: a National Celebration - Le Baiser de la fee at Royal Opera House, West End (Dance or ballet). Kenneth MacMillan had long wanted to set Stravinsky's vivid 1928 ballet score Le Baiser de la f?e (The Fairy's Kiss) when in 1960 he finally had his chance. Stravinsky's music is an homage to Tchaikovsky and 19th-century classical ballet. MacMillan followed suit, drawing on his considerable expertise in classical ballet to create a work that overtly recalls choreography by Marius Petipa and MacMillan's immediate forebear Frederick Ashton - while also bearing MacMillan's own distinctive stamp.
