Acclaimed throughout Europe as the reformer of ballet, Noverre published a new edition of his Lettres sur la danse in 1803, adding some twenty newletters to the fifteen already published in 1760. In these, he draws attention to his own pivotal role in ballet reform at the end of the 1750s and discusses the innovations brought about through his ballets during the 1760s and 1770s (Médée, Les Danaides, La Mort d’Agamemnon, Le Horaces et les Curiaces), in which he aims at opening up new paths for the reformed ballet. In her introductory essays, Flavia Pappacena analyses the theoretical basis of Noverre’s reform, retracing its link to contemporary culture and, by means of a comparison of the Lettres with the libretti from Noverre’s ballets, providing an original comparative analysis of theory and practice.
Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810) trained in the purest of academic styles and gained his first major success with the daring ballet Fêtes chinoises (1754) at Paris’Opéra-Comique, which earned him an engagement in London with David Garrick. After 1760, the year in which he publishes  Lettres sur la danse et sur les ballets, Noverre is engaged as maître de ballets at the most prestigious courts in Europe (Stuttgart, Vienna, Paris, London), composing nearly 150 ballets and creating an entire flock of disciples. He concluded his career directing the Ballet School of the Paris Opéra (1799 -1800) and with the publication of two new editions of the Lettres (1803-1804, 1807).Flavia Pappacena teaches Dance Theory and Dance Aesthetics at the National Academy of Dance and the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy at “La Sapienza” University in Rome.
