Chloë



Daphnis | Chloë | Dorkon | Lykanion | Bryaxis | Pan

Chloe is the heroine of the ballet, a young Shepherdess who is in love with Daphnis. In the original stories, while the two are still babies, both Chloë's and Daphnis's fathers have identical dreams in which Cupid touches the two future lovers with the same arrow. In the same dream, the fathers are both instructed to train their wards to tend sheep, an act which leads the two to meet and grow up together, over time falling in love.

In the ballet, there is never any doubt that the two are meant for each other, however doubt is cast on their future when Chloë is carried off by a band of pirates who attack the country.
