Format: Sheet Music | Score

Parade is a ballet with music composed by Erik Satie and a one-act scenario by Jean Cocteau. Created in 1916 for Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes and hailed as Satie’s "cubist manifesto."

Stripped of subjective emotion, the work removes basic fragments of melody and simple harmonies from their conventional associations and recasts them in unexpected but logical patterns, much as cubist painters exploded familiar forms into unexpected configurations.
