Les millions d'Arlequin (or Harlequinade) is a ballet in two acts with libretto and choreography by Marius Petipa and music by Italian composer Riccardo Drigo. It was first presented in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1900.
Drigo's score spawned the popular salon repertory piece known as the Serenade, which the composer later re-wrote as a song called Nuttorno d'amore for Beniamino Gigli. The Serenade has since been arranged for every conceivable instrument, particularly the violin and piano.
