This ballet is about the lead character, Peter, who embarked on a fantasy tour worldwide and encountered people of various nationalities. As this ballet is staged in a black box theatre, the set only consists of a single, non-representational and whimsically painted backdrop that gives a clue of what the ballet is about. For the costumes, folk silhouettes and ethnic/ national colours are employed to make characters of different countries appear more distinct from each other visually.
