This arrangement is based on Amilcare Ponchielli’s famous ballet suite which forms the finale to Act 3 of his opera La Gioconda from 1876. The suite became well known and was often performed as a standalone ballet. In the twentieth century its popularity was sustained partly due to its appearance as a segment in Disney’s Fantasia (1940) in the form of a comic ballet featuring anthropomorphised ostriches, hippos, elephants and alligators. Then later it remained present in popular and mainstream culture when segments of the piece formed the basis for the hit song Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh in 1963 by Allan Sherman.
In this arrangement, however, the focus remains closer to the grace of the original ballet rather than that of comic song or animation.
