GADE - A Folk Tale
Information in italics is from Ingrid at the CPMEMB:
The music used for the first waltz was actually THE wedding waltz in Denmark. I am quite sure that almost every couple in Denmark who choose to have a wedding waltz dance to this particular music. It as taken from a ballet called A Folk Tale. The following text is taken from the web site of The Royal Theatre:
"Bournonville’s A Folk Tale is an enchanting comedy of mistaken identity. While Miss Birthe pesters her servants at the manor farm, the patient and lovely Hilda lives with the trolls in their mount, enduring their monstrosities. Deep down, they both nurture dreams of a different life. Fortunately, their true identities are finally revealed and they find their rightful homes and all ends well to the tune of N.W. Gade’s delightful wedding waltz.
Choreographer: August Bournonville
Music: N.W. Gade and J.P.E. Hartmann
Set and costume designer: Her Majesty Queen Margrethe II"

Hope this helps.
