Thanks. I wonder who told Mr. Bonde that Bournonville created most of his ballets in "his mature age." The extant ballets are from his early 30s through his mid 50s (he lived until 1879, age 74). La Sylphide, 1836 - age 31. Napoli, 1842, age 37. Konservatoriet, 1849 (45). Kermesse 1851 (46). Folk Tale 1854 (49). Abdallah 1855 (50). La Ventana 1856 (51). Far From Denmark 1860 (55). And Lifeguards 1871 (66). Hope the dates are right
It's not the photo that should be causing discussion, though, but the green paint. I don't mean to criticize. I'm genuinely curious about how people are viewing it. It's a good point to make, that we can't see Bournonville (at any age) plain, because of the distance in time.
