Piano reduction I just got of Drigo's "Harlequinade"

Recommended Posts

I just bought an very old piano reduction of Drigo's 2 act "Harlequinade" off of Ebay. Although the manuscript is for piano, it also specifies orchestration. It also has stage directions in french. Theres a dedication in to an Alexandra Feodorovna? It also gives a listing of the orignal cast. I was wondering if anying knows anything about this book?

the dedication page to alexandra feodorovna refers to the empress alexandra, wife of tsar nicholas II

the pugni/humpbacked horse piano score i have is dedicated to marfa muraveyva, the first tsar maiden.

these mss. seem variously dedicated to royal family or to leading ballerinas.
