The Pas de Quatra was a “dueling ballet” of sorts, as the four greatest ballerinas of the Romantic age - Fanny Cerrito, Lucile Grahn, Carlotta Grisi, and Marie Taglioni - appeared together on the stage of His Majesty's Theatre, London, brought together by Jules Perrot. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert attended the third of four performances, on July 12, 1845.

In 1941 the Ballet was restaged with Nathalie Krassovska as Lucile Grahn, Mia Slavenska as Carlotta Grisi, Alexandra Danilova as Fanny Cerrito, and Alicia Markova as Marie Taglioni. Since then many ballet companies and dancers have performed the piece.
