Clari, ou La promesse de mariage, choreographed by Louis-Jacques Milon to music by Rodolphe Kreutzer (1766-1831) was first performed at the Académie Royale de Musique on June 19, 1820.

Milon (?1766-?1849) was a French ballet dancer, choreographer, and ballet master. He produced highly successful ballets including Pygmalion (starring his young sister-in-law, Émilie Bigottini) and Héro et Léandre, after which he was named assistant ballet master to Pierre Gardel... "Another ballet that made a favorable impression several years later was Clari... with Bigottini and Albert in the principal roles. 'It was a typical example of pre-Romantic ballet,' said Ivor Guest (1980), 'with characters drawn from everyday life and its action evincing a rather naive sympathy with the common people.' " Monique Babsky in the International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 4, pp. 422-423. He was also considered the last "grand professeur" of pantomime at the Opéra." Wikipedia. Item #29724
