...scene to music by Delibes . The ballet's most significant staging occurred in 1899 when Petipa completely reworked it for the Mariinsky (with additional music by Drigo and Minkus ) with Pierina Legnani as Medora. This is the production which formed the basis for subsequent Russian stagings during the 20th century, including Gorsky's (Bolshoi, 1912 ) that gave Conrad and Medora a new love duet, Gusev's (Maly, 1955 ) and K. Sergeyev's 1973 . In 2007 Ratmansky staged a reconstructed version of the 1899 production for the Bolshoi, which re-instated...

... Mit Theaterliv in three parts ( 1848 , 1865 , and 1877 ), which were translated into English as My Theatre Life (Middletown, Conn., 1979 ). After his death Bournonville's ballets continued to form the core of the Danish Ballet's repertory, and the preservation of his choreography and his style was undertaken by Beck in the early years of the 20th century. Beck's retirement brought about a temporary eclipsing of Bournonville but since 1950 , regular ballet festivals in Copenhagen have showcased the repertory and a succession of scholars and...

...Claudel began work on a version of the story of Joan of Arc, which in its completed form was a collaboration between Claudel and Honneger. As Jeanne au Bûcher , it was performed once in Basel in 1938 and in a concert version in June 1939 at the Palais de Chaillot, Paris. This was Ida Rubinstein's last public performance. But it seems unlikely that she intended to end her career with this work, as she was then working on three other projects ( Orienne la Sans Egale by F. Schmitts, Le Chevalier Errant by Jacques Ibert, and L'Histoire de Tobie et de...

...over male roles en travestie. The Paris Opera moved to the Palais Garnier in 1875 , where it remains today. Mérante's Sylvia ( 1876 ), L. Petipa 's Namouna ( 1882 ), and Mérante's Les Deux Pigeons ( 1886 ) were the final successes of the 19th century. By the start of the 20th century, the company was in serious decline. Despite the presence of some fine French dancers and regular guest ballerinas like Mauri and Zambelli , the serious repertory was crowded out by opera divertissements. It was the Paris seasons of Diaghilev's Ballets Russes which...

...as a means of courtship. Finally, dance form and style also played an important role in scholars' adjudication of folk dance authenticity. As dances were documented, collectors sought to establish the oldest and purest form: that which had been known longest in the community and had not been corrupted by outside influences. Collectors also valued the performance style of natural or indigenous dance that seemed untutored when compared to sophisticated fashions of the time. The early documentation of dance forms and styles led to the codification of folk...
