Parade is a ballet with music by Erik Satie and a one-act scenario by the French artist Jean Cocteau composed in 1916-1917 for Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes and premiered in 1917 in Paris, with costumes and sets designed by Pablo Picasso. Cocteau started writing a scenario - the theme being a publicity parade in which three groups of circus artists try to attract an audience to an indoor performance - to which Satie composed the music. The score contained several 'noise-making' instruments (typewriter, foghorn, an assortment of milk bottles, pistol,...), which had been added by Jean Cocteau. Dutch arranger Guus Dohmen transcribed Satie's Parade for Symphonic Band including all of Jean Cocteau's extraordinary additions.
