A Pastoral is a musical genre that idyllically illustrates nature, shepherds and shepherdesses. The one entitled "Les Festes de l'Amour et de Bachus", in a prologue and three acts, was performed in 1672. It is made up of extracts from different ballet-comedies composed by Lully for Molière (Georges Dandin, Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme , The Comic Pastoral, The Magnificent Lovers).
"The Magnificent Lovers", comedy-ballet in five acts and a prologue, was not published until after the death of Molière. This "comedy mixed with music and Ballet entries" was performed in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in 1670. The verses "Dormez, belles pommes" are taken from scene IV of the 3rd interlude.
