Beethoven was commissioned to write his first stage work - a ballet score for 'Die Gesch�pfe des Prometheus' (The Creatures of Prometheus) - for the dancer and choreographer Salvatore Vigan�, nephew of composer Luigi Boccherini. In the myth, Prometheus is punished by Zeus for stealing fire for the benefit of mankind; in the allegorical ballet, Prometheus brings enlightenment ideas of art and science to humanity. The overture remains popular and the finale - the theme of which Beethoven was later to use in his 'Eroica' Symphony - offers a heroic conclusion.
