The production was staged by Ivo

Cramer , an expert in late 18th century and early 19th century dance theatre, and the Ballet du Rhin's artistic director, Jean Paul Gravier. They painstakingly researched the original production, locating a copy of the original score in Stockholm, which describes the 1789 production, including details of the original mime passages. The original score was restored and orchestrated by the conductor Charles Farncombe. The designer Dominique Delouche created sets and costumes inspired by the designs used in the original. Though Dauberval's original choreography is lost, Cramer crafted dances in the style of the period, with heavy influence from folk dancing, as in the original. Cramer also restored the original scheme for the ballet's finale, in which the dancers, singing along with the music, shout out the refrain ''Il n'est qu'un pas du mal au bien'' ("There is Only One Step from Bad to Good"). The production was presented under the original title, ''Le ballet de la paille'' ("The Ballet of Straw"). Isacsson was born in Ronneby, Sweden.
