In 1860, the great Danish choreographer and ballert-master August Bournonville wrote a series of eight public letters expressing his views on many aspects of ballet in his time, ranging from artistic and moral considerations to cultural comment and practical advice. Brimming with vision, opinion and wit, these provocative writings provide an important and fascinating insight into the world of nineteenth-century Romantic ballet, as viewed by one of its foremost exponents.
