MINI-SCORE
The Polovtsian Dances form an exotic scene at the end of Act II of Alexander Borodin's opera 'Prince Igor'. The work remained unfinished when the composer died in 1887, although he had worked on it for more than a decade. A performing version was prepared by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Alexander Glazunov, appearing in 1890.  Several other versions, or 'completions', of the opera have been made. Their music is popular and sometimes given in concert as an orchestral showpiece, divided in 5 parts :
    Dance of the young Polovtsian maidens
    Introduction - Dance of the young slave maidens - Dance of the wild men
    General dance - Dance of the Polovtsian slaves
    Dance of the little boys - Dance of the men - Dance of the young maidens
    Dance of the little boys - Dance of the men - General dance
