Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Les Rendezvous is an abstract ballet created in 1933 with choreography by Frederick Ashton, to the music of Daniel Fran ois Esprit Auber (the ballet music from his opera L'enfant prodigue) arranged by Constant Lambert and with designs by William Chappell. It was the first major ballet created by Ashton for the Vic-Wells company. It was first performed on Tuesday, 5 December 1933, by Vic-Wells Ballet at Sadler's Wells Theatre, with Alicia Markova and Stanislas Idzikowsky in the lead roles; these were later taken by Margot Fonteyn and Robert Helpmann. The choreography was revised in 1934 and the work was performed every season from 1933 to 1945, then from 1959 to 1963, when it used the then set by Sophie Fedorovitch for Act 1 of La Traviata.show more
