The Red Poppy, or sometimes The Red Flower is a ballet in three acts and eight tableaus with an apotheosis, with a score written by Reinhold Glière. This ballet was created in 1927 as the first Soviet ballet with a modern revolutionary theme. Possibly the most famous dance from this ballet is the Sailors Dance, sometimes referred to as the "Russian Sailors Dance" (although it is described as "Dance of the Sailors from the Soviet Ship" in the score and libretto). It is this musical selection for which Glière is perhaps best known.
