"The Grotesque Dancer on the Eighteenth-Century Stage examines the theatrical world of the ballerino grottesco, Magri's own career as a dancer in Italy and Vienna, the genre of pantomime ballet as it was practiced by Magri and his colleagues across Europe, the relationships between dance and pantomime in this type of work, the music used to accompany pantomime ballets, and the movement vocabulary of the grotesque dancer. Appendixes contain scenarios from eighteenth-century pantomime ballets, including several of Magri's own devising, an index to the step-vocabulary discussed in Magri's book, and an index of dancers in Italy known to have performed as grotteschi. Illustrations, musical examples, and dance notations also supplement the text."--Jacket

Christoph Willibald Gluck and opéra-comique in Vienna, 1754-1764 by Bruce Alan Brown( )

18 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gluck's French comic operas for Vienna, and the historical and cultural issues surrounding them, furnish the objects of this study. Opera-comique, while heavily dependent on French popular song, or vaudeville, nevertheless enjoyed an international vogue during the later eighteenth century; its interactions with German culture are especially intriguing, as playwrights and composers in German-speaking lands were just then starting to assert their national identity. Gluck's works in the genre come at a crucial time in relation to his own career--they span the years of Orfeo and Don Juan--and to the evolution of the genre in Paris

Gary Kahn explores the performance history of an opera which, although largely ignored for over a hundred and fifty years, has now taken its place as part of the international operatic repertoire. A selection of the unique letters between Mozart and his father written during the opera's composition is also included
