Parisiana, a ballet arranged and produced by Charles Wilson as a series of sketches set in Paris from the time of the French Revolution to the early 20th Century, was choreographed by Alfredo Curti to the music of James M. Glover. With a ‘second edition’ being staged on 19 March 1906, Parisiana remained on the Alhambra bill for 61 weeks.
