Salvador Dalí work "Winged Swan of The Bacchanale Ballet" was a theater backdrop painting made for the Ballet, "Bacchanale". During his years in America, the Surrealist Spanish artist, Salvador Dali did not limit his activities solely to painting. He designed advertisements, wrote an autobiography, worked on cinema and designed for theater and ballet productions. In 1939, Salvador Dali designed the set and wrote the libretto for a ballet entitled Bacchanale, based on the myth of Leda and the Swan, a story and subject in art from Greek mythology in which the god Zeus, in the form of a swan, seduces or rapes Leda. Dali also wrote the scenario and designed the costumes. It was a Metropolitan Opera production, choreographed by Leonide Massine for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. The ballet was set to the music of Richard Wagner, whose patron, King Ludwig II, was portrayed in the scenario.
