The Haunted Ballroom


Winchester-born Geoffrey Toye (1889–1942) was primarily a conductor of symphony concerts, opera and ballet. It was in this last capacity that he composed the music for two ballets choreographed by Ninette de Valois. One of these was The Haunted Ballroom (1935), the waltz from which became immensely popular.

Geoffrey Toye (1889-1942), natif de Winchester, fut essentiellement un chef d’orchestre de concerts symphoniques, d’opéras et de ballets. Ce fut à ce dernier titre qu’il composa la musique de deux ballets chorégraphies par Ninette de Valois, avec notamment la valse, devenue immensément populaire, du ballet The Haunted Ballroom (1935).
