With the publication of this title, Dr. Guest completes his massive survey of ballet in France from 1770 to 1870.
The present volume covers the period from 1793 to 1819, the time of such luminaries as Gardel, Milon, Vestris, Duport, and Bigottini. This period has often been dismissed as an interlude of decadence before the flowering of the romantic ballet, but as Dr. Guest reveals in this vivid and definitive account, it was in fact a period of great significance in the development of ballet as a major theatre art.
As always, Ivor Guest is incapable of dullness, but writes with the devotion and excitement of the true enthusiast, and has added a major new item to his already extensive bibliography.
