Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Les F tes Chinoises is an 18th century ballet by Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810). The exact date of the ballet's composition is unknown but it was probably created in 1751 for Marseilles where Noverre was ballet master. Revivals followed in Lyon and Strasburg, and the ballet was staged in Paris on Monday, 1 July 1754, at the Op ra-Comique, with decors by Fran ois Boucher. Les F tes Chinoises had little in the way of plot or theme but instead was a series of danced pictures inspired by the Chinoiserie designs of the Rococo that embroidered upon descriptions of China by travellers and explorers.
