Did you know that it wasn't until the nineteenth century, Greek myths and classical opera
provided the main source of stories for ballet. Thus this early era is sometimes called the Classical age of ballet. The Romantic age marks a turning-away from such overworked pieces to more familiar books and tales which were called "romances." In these, the world of the imagination was glorified.
Which world would you prefer to be in?
As for me, I prefer the Romantic age!
