Written in 1898, Raymonda is deemed to be Glazunov's finest ballet, stately and melodious. Raymonda bids farewell to her betrothed Jean de Brienne, who presents her with a silk shawl as a farewell gift and goes to fight in the Crusades. She dreams of him, but her dreams are frequently interrupted by the ocurrence of a Saracen warrior. Abderakhman is fascinated by the beautiful noblewoman and ultimately attempts to abduct her, duelling with Jean who, by this time, has now returned home.
