the NUTCRACKER 2014
Fun Facts:

Mother Ginger Costume

For those who don't know who Mere Gigogne is, she was an identifiable line of bonbons that
sold in St. Petersburg in 1890. The tin box was in the shape of a woman in a LARGE panniered
skirt. The box opened at the bottom of the panniers, and all the little bonbons were inside. The
first time Petipa used her, she was in his restaging of the old ballet "Le Diable à Quatre", which
he called "The Wilful Wife". The part was mimed by a stout old comedian named Yakovlev. She
was such a hit, Petipa wrote her into the libretto for Nutcracker.

Further:

The character of Mere Gigone itself originates from French puppet comedy in the 17th century
as a woman always fighting with her multiple children who- indeed- at times come to hide
under her large skirt.
