              Jules Massenet (1842-1912) is the author of twenty-five operas, oratorios, over two hundred eighty songs, and numerous instrumental works. When his descendant Anne Massenet was entrusted with the family archives, she discovered more than a thousand letters exchanged with his fami...ly, students, colleagues, friends, and even a few competitors! Anne Massenet's new biography, published in France in 2001, is now translated into English by Mary Dibbern. It reveals unknown aspects of Massenet's personality as documented by letters to his son-in-law Leon Alloend-Bessand who, even after his divorce from Juliette, the composer's only child, was his father-in-law's confident. Equally revealing are hundreds of other previously unpublished letters, mostly to his spouse Louise-Constance, nicknamed Ninon, whose long and frequent spa cures forced him to experience unbearable solitude. This is an intimate portrait of Massenet, seen through a unique collection of primary source documents.

              Studies in the English Pantomime: 1712-1733
               

              Studies in the English Pantomime: 1712-1733 (Paperback)

              By Semmens, Richard

              While interest in pantomime entertainments in eighteenth-century England has grown considerably over the past three decades, few studies among the many excellent ones that have appeared have paid concentrated attention to music and dancing. This book aims, among other things, to ...rectify that situation. It offers five interrelated studies in which the movement and sound of pantomimes is a central concern. The first chapter contextualizes the significant contributions of the pioneering dance theorist and historian, John Weaver. It pays particular attention to his long-lived interest in comic dancing, not only as practised by the "ancients," but in his own work for the London stages, as well, as both choreographer and performer. The second study of the book offers an in depth reading of John Thurmond's Harlequin Doctor Faustus (1723) at Drury Lane theatre. A close examination of the rival production at Lincoln's Inn Fields, Lewis Theobald's Harlequin Doctor Faustus; or, The Necromancer, is the task of the third essay. Because the two rival productions attracted enormous interest among audiences, commentators, and critics of the time, the fourth study of the book considers how disparate entertainment types-musical theatre, masquerades, and magic shows, for example-were significant elements in what the critics noticed about the Faustus pantomimes, and their unprecedented success. The final study of the book considers how a new comic pantomime by Theophilus Cibber, and a serious one by John Weaver became enmeshed at Drury Lane in 1733, and argues that the combination of these two entertainments in a single afterpiece was informed, in part, by the structure of Harlequin Doctor Faustus.
