Boris Frödman-Cluzel was known for his delicately modelled depictions of dancers. The Russian ballerina Ludmilla Schollar (1888-1978) danced with the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg and, between 1909 and 1914, was a member of Sergei Diaghilev's legendary Ballets Russes. She later taught ballet in the United States.

The role of Cleopatra was created by the choreographer Michel Fokine in his ballet Cléopâtre, which received its premiere in Paris in 1909.
