The Ballet 'Apollo' was originally choreographed by George Balanchine in 1928. The music is by Igor Stravinsky and the costumes were designed by Coco Chanel. The ballet revolves around the main character, Apollo, and his interaction with the three muses: Poetry, Rhetoric, and Dance. It begins with the birth of Apollo, then the presentation of the gifts from the muses, and ends with their ascent into the arena of the Gods on Mount Olympus.
