De fåvitska jungfrurna, 1920s

On Christmas Day 1920, the newly started performing arts company Svenska Baletten was visiting London and the classic Christmas song was included in the music for the ballet De fåvitska jungfrurna. The ballet is based on the biblical story of the wise and unwise (ignorant) virgins. The ignorant maidens became a real audience favorite and was danced 375 times.
