From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bizet orchestrated five of these (Nos. 6, 3, 2, 11, 12) as the Petite Suite. The remaining movements were later orchestrated by Roy Douglas andHershy Kay and the complete orchestral suite has been recorded.[1]

Sigfrid Karg-Elert wrote his orchestral suite after Bizet’s Jeux d’enfants, Op. 21, in 1902.[2]

In 1955, George Balanchine choreographed the entire suite as the ballet Jeux d’enfants. In 1975 he made a new ballet, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, using only four of the movements.
