Robert le Diable: The Ballet of the Nuns offers a new approach to the study of one of the most ground-breaking works in European ballet history. Based on the choreographic notations made by the great nineteeth-century Danish choreographer, August Bournonville, this spectral dance scene has been recreated by Knud Arne Jurgensen with the precision afforded by Labanotation, here recorded by Ann Hutchinson Guest. Supported by extensive historical source materials and study and performance notes, this book not only enables us to unearth a hitherto lost ballet from the Romantic period, but also represents the most accurate possible reflection of the very pulse of Romantic ballet.
