Almost the whole troupe of 74 people takes part in the ballet, which features four separate casts. Vakhtang Chabukiani first staged the work in 1939 and it has been shown 12 times since in Minsk, from 1955-1956, conducted by Iosif Abramis, choreographed by Semen Drechin and with sets and costumes by Mikhail Blishch.

It has now reappeared on the repertoire after almost 60 years, with an entirely new interpretation, although in consultation with those who worked with Chabukiani in Tbilisi, dancing in the original performance. Additional mise-en-scenes have been added, while the performance has been made more dynamic and easier for the audience to follow.
