There are four movements, each dressed in different shades of pink (or rose) and gray. The women wear knee-length tutus.
The cast is as follows:
- 1st Mvt: One lead couple, one female soloist, four men, eight women.
- 2nd Mvt: Lead couple, three women
- 3rd Mvt: Lead couple, three demisoloist women, lots and lots of women (24?)
- 4th Mvt: Lead couple, eight couples.

To add to Farrell fan's casting recollections - the third movement was a vehicle for Edward Villella (and I believe Allegra Kent) - it has an innocence to it, but also a slightly military feel. You need to be a good jumper to do it.
Hope this is useful!
