Just came across this on a newsblog:

The plot of the ballet is as follows:

"After Lord Wilson, an English explorer, escapes a storm by taking shelter in the tomb of Aspicia, the pharaoh’s daughter, he smokes opium and falls asleep. Aspicia comes to life, touches his heart, and he is transformed into the dashing Egyptian Ta-Hor".

Apparently not a great ballet Laughing
