This arrangement of the introduction to the ballet is supplied in two versions. The first is in the original pitch but is of limited use as it ends on a dominant B (H), and you probably won't bother to print it. The second is down a semitone and was written to introduce the Rose Adagio, although if you stop to think how many pieces you have in E flat, you can have a lot of fun with it.
