Pulcinella is a ballet by Igor Stravinsky based on an 18th-century play — Pulcinella is a character originating from Commedia dell'arte. The ballet premiered at the Paris Opera on 15 May 1920 under the baton of Ernest Ansermet. The dancer Léonide Massine created both the libretto and choreography, and Pablo Picasso designed the original costumes and sets. It was commissioned by Sergei Diaghilev.

The Pulcinella suite consists of eight movements: Sinfonia Serenata a: Scherzino b: Allegretto c: Andantino Tarantella Toccata Gavotta (con due variazioni) Vivo a: Minuetto b: Finale
