"A very lively scene, where assorted revelers invite us to join in the festivities of the first masked ball of the 1894 season. The feeling of agitated movement is conveyed with a masterly perfection.
Like virtually all of the posters Cheret did for the dances at this theatre between 1892 and 1897, the design features a profiled woman in a billowing dress looking out over her shoulder as a …male figure and other revellers dance around her. Cheret would do a single design each winter and it would be repeated with varying text throughout the season… Cheret, reworking the same visual ingredients always keeps us interested" (Rennert)
