AUGUSTIN BERGER (1861-1945), a Czech dancer, ballet master and choreographer; since 1883 member of the National Theatre in Prague, also active in Dresden and New York in the Metropolitan Opera (1923 - 1932).
The second scene of Swan Lake was presented on 21 February 1888 in Prague by the Ballet of the National Theatre in a version mounted by the ballet master August Berger. The ballet was given during two concerts which were conducted by Tchaikovsky. The composer noted in his diary that he experienced "a moment of absolute happiness" when the ballet was performed. Berger's production followed the 1877 libretto, though the names of Prince Siegfried and Benno were changed to Jaroslav and Zdeňek, with the rôle of Benno danced by a female dancer en travestie. The rôle of Prince Siegfried was danced by Berger himself with the ballerina Giulietta Paltriniera-Bergrova as Odette. Berger's production was only given eight performances and was even planned for production at the Fantasia Garden in Moscow in 1893, but it never materialised.
